"The skills gained through sequential music instruction, including discipline and the ability to analyze, solve problems, communicate and work cooperatively, are vital for success in the 21st century workforce."

Music is an integral part of your child’s education and through participation in the music programs of the NVUSD, students can excel in all areas of their school careers and beyond. Research reinforces that students who participate in music do better in school and life. Students become self-disciplined, responsible and accountable, and develop strong interactive social skills. Through participation in music education a child’s thinking skills are boosted, well-being is fostered; it inspires, motivates, and builds skills for the future. Music begins for most students in the NVUSD by the 4th grade and continues through 12th. Music offerings include instrumental and choral music classes.  Elementary music is generally offered once a week with daily classes at the Middle and High School levels.

"Through music, I can be, I can create, I can grow, I can give back, all with confidence."

- NVUSD High School Student  

"I did not realize that when I opened my flute case for the first time in fourth grade, I was opening hope for my future."
