• VVS Music Department - Making Connections

              The VVS Music Department provides opportunities for enjoyment of music through singing, performing, creating, listening, and exploring musical technology in classes and ensembles. The VVS Music Department strives to keep students, faculty and staff, alumni, and the greater community invested in their program. Music Department goals and standards are aligned perfectly with the district’s goals, vision, and desire to be recognized as a district of distinction.

            In grades PreK-8, students participate in general music classes. At the high school level, many music electives are offered, and students are encouraged to continue their studies of music, regardless of ensemble participation.  All students in grades 3-12 may elect to participate in performing ensembles that include chorus (starting in third grade), band (starting in fourth grade), and orchestra (starting in fourth grade). To sustain our reputation as a district of distinction, it is essential that our students spend at least one year in an ensemble at the elementary level. There are many music-related opportunities at all levels, elementary and secondary, and students are encouraged to pursue music enrichment throughout their academic careers. 

            The VVS Music Department is supported by our dedicated Performing Arts Boosters organization, comprised of parents and community members that meets the first Wednesday of every month. This group helps to provide many musical opportunities for students through their volunteerism and financial support.
