Music

Music education helps students to perform better academically. We offer violin and marimba classes during the early stages of elementary school. By the fourth grade all Village students choose whether they wish to study voice in the choir, a wind or percussion instrument in the band, or a stringed instrument in the orchestra.

Differentiated learning is a key approach in all music classes, and students are encouraged to do their best according to their level. The Village approach to balanced music education consists of three essential components - ensemble rehearsals, private lesson instruction, and computer assisted music homework with feedback.

Ensemble training is the central element in our performing curriculum. As the Fine Arts Department has grown and developed, so too have the ensemble programs. These programs include over 300 students in 4th through 12th grade in Band, Choir and Orchestra.  Ensemble students often collaborate and perform together.

Through performances and competitions, students gain confidence and a sense of accomplishment. Technique, setting personal goals, and performing as a team, alongside teaching larger life lessons and working to build a strong music community is the focus of our instructors. Working as a group, our students experience the magic of creating harmonies with others.

Band, Choir and Orchestra members rehearse between three and five times a week and also participate in well renowned ensembles outside of school, such as the Houston Youth Symphony, and have won prestigious recognition at the TMEA, TPSMEA and ATSSB Regional and State level auditions/competitions.
