After nearly a decade spent establishing itself as a fixture for families in Chester County, Valotta Studios is moving to the Eagleview Town Center. The private music and education center was founded by Nadine Valotta-Badasarian in 2012 in Chester Springs, as a continuation of her own small home studio.

In the years that followed, Valotta Studios has rapidly grown to become the largest provider of music lessons and classes in our area, working with more than 500 students each week and employing a dedicated team of more than 45 trained and talented educators. 

While Valotta Studios had been outgrowing its current location for quite some time, initial plans to move were put on hold like so much else 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 work, but at that point, my focus had to shift to keeping the business alive during these unprecedented times,” said Valotta-Badasarian. 

“My director of operations, John Ericsson, and I transitioned our entire business to a virtual platform within one weekend. Many parents described our move to virtual learning as ‘seamless’ and appreciated that music lessons at our studio were among the only activities that their child didn’t have to miss when the lockdown first started. Fast forward two years, and now our studio is the largest it has ever been, and we are beyond thankful for all of the flexibility and support from our Valotta families.” 

Valotta Studios, in addition to providing private music lessons to hundreds of students each week, also has a thriving music therapy program with two board-certified music therapists.  

It also offers a host of semesterly group classes and summer camps for toddlers to teens, academic tutoring, and partnerships with local libraries, schools, and MOMS Clubs to explore every avenue available to bring music and education to our community.  

“Music education is priceless. No matter what age you are, music education is essential and available for everyone. I truly believe that music teaches so much more than just how to play an instrument. The responsibility, confidence, and expressive nature of music helps you grow as an individual alongside having the ability to play music for life,” said Valotta-Badasarian.  

“We are proud to be so deeply ingrained 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 be joining a community as vibrant and exciting as Eagleview Town Center. We greatly look forward to making the same kinds of connections with our new neighbors and patrons this summer.” 

Families can visit Valotta Studios at Eagleview Town Center starting this May.  

The grand opening will be held on Saturday, May 21 from 12:30-3 PM with light refreshments and live music, and it is open to the public.
