Founded ten years ago by Dr. Fiona Chatwin as a 501(c)3 non-profit corporation, Villa Musica is a vibrant gathering place located in Sorrento Valley where people of all ages and backgrounds can come together to take music lessons, play in an ensemble, or participate in a workshop.
Villa Musica’s goal is to create a focal point for community music education in San Diego, where students and teachers can meet to exchange ideas and experience the joy of making music.
By creating a supportive and creative environment for the study of music, Dr. Chatwin aspires to inspire many San Diegans to make music making part of their lives.
Dr. Fiona Chatwin is a versatile, committed and highly motivated music educator and arts administrator. Her dedication to the education of musicians of all ages over the past 24 years has constituted a career of great satisfaction, innovation and diversity.
