Sonya Valentino is a magna cum laude graduate of West Virginia University’s College of Creative Arts, where she studied under a full scholarship in voice. She has taught music in both public and private schools, with nearly four decades of experience in teaching private lessons.
Seven of her former students are presently working as professional music directors or performers. Dozens of others regularly serve in churches, community theater, and other volunteer music positions. Additionally, more than a dozen former students have gone on to teach private music lessons themselves.
At Grace Notes Music Academy, students are the focus of instruction. Musical excellence is extremely important; however, the students’ needs and goals are the primary concern. Students are challenged to do their individual best, whatever their capacities might be. Encouragement and supportive approaches are used to motivate the students.
While Sonya has an extensive performance resume in a variety of venues, she most enjoys seeing the gift of music expand both to and through her students. She sees each pupil as a person whom God has placed in her life to serve and to love. For more information, contact:
