VCMS community classes instruct groups of 4-8 students at a beginner or intermediate level and cover music theory, technique, repertoire, and performance at a very low cost to the individual. Students will perform in recitals to showcase their work and talent. Community Classes are held weekly at our locations with the benefit of in-house instruments. This makes for a perfect opportunity to try a new instrument without having to purchase it first. VCMS partners with local organizations and ministries to create community classes in your neighborhood.
Community Classes are offered in the following disciplines:
- Music Production
AFTER SCHOOL PROGRAMS
VCMS offers after-school music classes to public, private, and charter schools. Curriculum can be tailored to fit your school’s needs, but will always include basic proficiency in a discipline and basic music notation giving students exposure to music as well as preparation for future musical opportunities. Classes can perform at school events along with a recital at the end of the semester. Classroom sizes are between 8-20 students per teacher depending on the type of class. Arrangements can be made to have multiple teachers. Classes can be held at any of our sites or at your school.
