Quaker Valley was named one of the “100 Best Communities for Music Education” by the National Association of Music Makers (NAMM) for the 14th year in a row in 2018. The criteria used in judging music education included the percentage of music courses that are required versus elective, class sizes, the size of the music staff, as well as community resources that support music and the arts. Quaker Valley students continue to compete and excel at the local, regional, state and national levels.

This, a million times over! It breaks my heart when students stop singing lessons in year 10 because their parents want them to ‘concentrate on GCSEs’. We’re talking about 20 mins out of 25 hours per week! https://twitter.com/VFleischfresser/status/1438900670673924101

Children don’t ‘miss out’ when they leave class to go to a music lesson. On the contrary, they gain a lot.

People need to realize that yes, attention spans *are* getting shorter. It’s much harder to wire necessary patience into the brains of adults than of those of kids. Music can help develop it when it counts the most, and is one of the most effective and rewarding ways to do so.

Music is
Elementary.

Elementary students are “tuned in” to music beginning in the first grade. Music exploration and learning is achieved through singing, playing of classroom instruments, movement, and listening to music. Students are exposed to a variety of musical styles including traditional folk songs, patriotic music, and multicultural music. Creativity is constantly fostered, encouraged, and celebrated.
