PVPA is a regional public charter school serving 400 students grades 7-12, from over 60 towns throughout Western Massachusetts. We seek to connect the creative process with critical thinking to inspire a love of learning. As a charter school, the work we do informs educational policy at local, state and national levels.
PVPA's Music Department seeks to provide a safe, supportive, and exciting environment for students to explore their creative side, and offers an outlet for young musicians of all skill levels. We strive to offer a broad exposure to the basics as well as more advanced pursuits for students who seek additional challenges. It is our belief that every student should have the opportunity to sing, play, AND learn about music. Students may choose from introductory classes in theory, technique, history, and performance. Once they have explored these areas they are encouraged to try a class in something they have never experienced before, including our offerings in world music, or auditioning for upper level groups.
