After nearly a decade establishing itself as a staple for Chester County families, Valotta Studios is moving to downtown Eagleview. The private music and education center was founded by Nadine Valotta-Badasarian in 2012 in Chester Springs, as an extension of her own small home studio.
In the years since, Valotta Studios has grown rapidly to become the largest provider of music lessons and lessons in our region, working with over 500 students each week and employing a dedicated team of over 45 educators. trained and talented.
While Valotta Studios had outgrown its current location for some time, initial plans to move were put on hold like so many others during the COVID-19 pandemic.
“We actually started the process of trying to move four years ago! When the pandemic hit it was devastating to see our plans fall through after two years of hard work, but at that time I had to focus on keeping the business going in these unprecedented times,” said Valotta-Badasarian.
“My COO, John Ericsson, and I transitioned our entire business to a virtual platform in a weekend. Many parents have described our shift to virtual learning as “smooth” and appreciated that music lessons at our studio were among the only activities their child didn’t have to miss when the lockdown began. Fast forward two years, and now our studio is the biggest it’s ever been, and we’re beyond grateful for all the flexibility and support from our Valotta families.
Valotta Studios, in addition to providing private music lessons to hundreds of students each week, also offers a thriving music therapy program with two certified music therapists.
It also offers a host of semester group classes and summer camps for toddlers to teens, academic tutoring, and partnerships with local libraries, schools, and MOMS Clubs to explore all avenues available to bring music and education to our community.
“Music education is priceless. Whatever your age, musical education is essential and accessible to all. I sincerely believe that music teaches much more than just how to play an instrument. Responsibility, trust and the expressive nature of music help you grow as an individual while having the ability to play music for life,” said Valotta-Badasarian.
“We are proud to be so deeply rooted in our local neighborhood, with word of mouth alone accounting for the majority of our growth. As we prepare to move into our new deam studio, we are thrilled to join such a community. vibrant and exciting as Eagleview Town Center. We look forward to building the same kind of relationships with our new neighbors and customers this summer.”
Families can visit Valotta Studios in downtown Eagleview starting in May.
The grand opening will take place on Saturday, May 21 from 12:30 p.m. to 3 p.m. with light refreshments and live music, and is open to the public.
