    VVS Music Department: Mission Statement

    The mission of the VVS Music Department is to encourage our students
    to continue to explore the world of music.

    We strive to create a place within the school community where creativity can flourish and beauty can exist; where students are given the opportunity to express their ideas and feelings and are challenged to excel through music.

    We strive to foster excellence and innovation.

    Our mission will be accomplished through our efforts to:
    *Provide a variety of courses and performing groups for musicians and non-musicians which will provide opportunity for musical growth.
    *Provide curriculum, benchmarks and assessments which are aligned with the NYS Standards and the Common Core Curriculum.
    *Provide the music and the study of other cultures which will allow students to develop tolerance and respect for others and themselves.
    *Interconnect music with the content of other curriculums.
    *Provide additional opportunities outside of the VVS Community in order to enhance the musical experiences of the students
     (i.e. NYSSMA Solo and Major festivals, Madison County Music Educators’ Association[MCMEA] All-County,
    NYSSMA Area and Conference All-State Festivals, New York State Band Directors’ Association [NYSBDA] Honor Band, etc.).
    *Provide opportunities that develop collaboration and teamwork.
    *Prepare our students to be career and college ready.
