Performing Arts


The Central Valley Music Department strives for the highest possible level of performances with each of its performing groups. By participating in a performing ensemble, students will learn how to improve his or her singing/playing and be educated in a variety of musical styles through performance of various types of literature. Participation in a performing music group provides many long-term rewards that will benefit students including:

  • Life-long learning
  • Music appreciation
  • Self-expression and creativity
  • Self-discipline and work ethic
  • Self-worth, awareness and esteem
  • Collaboration and communication
  • Interdisciplinary learning
  • Artistic potential

Therefore, Central Valley Music Department’s main goal is to use music as a vehicle that will allow us to better prepare students for productive, enjoyable, and successful futures.
