Napa Valley Education Foundation’s Music Connection

Napa Valley Education Foundation’s Music Connection

What They Do:

Welcome students to the world of music, regardless of their circumstances. Provide quality no/low cost musical instruments and enhance children’s musical experiences with opportunities for accessible instruction throughout Napa – both in and out of the classroom. Music opportunities for students include:  Summer Music Workshops, Band/String Buddies and Music Festival Days.

Students who participate in music do better in school and in life. That’s why the Music Connection believes music should be an integral part of the school day. We are dedicated to providing NVUSD students with access to quality music equipment, instruction and time for exploration.

We provide no/low cost instruments, offer Summer Music Workshops, and Music Festival Days. We host Band/String Buddies, pairing young musicians with high school “buddies” to learn from their older peers. The Music Connection reaches nearly every student musician in the Napa Valley Unified School District, helping to inspire and motivate students, and building skills for their future!

Other Ways to Help:

  • Donate your old instruments! We will bring them back to life and put them into the hands of students.
  • Donate your time to volunteer at one of our fundraising events.


Students in our school district now have a connection and access to music. More instruments than ever are being put into the hands of students and that’s all made possible because of The Music Connection.
