The Valley Conservatory is a music service center with programs designed to develop all aspects of the students’ mind, body and character. Our programs incorporate the Holistic Approach to Learning to develop the “total student” through the medium of music.
Our focus is in four areas:
Valley Conservatory believes music is an art and a science involving both left and right brain activity. Its philosophy is that the aesthetic and technical aspects of music can be used to teach concepts and principles from academic, physical, spiritual and social realms.
Conceptual thinking is vital to a complete music education experience. This philosophy gives teachers unlimited resources in conveying musical principals to the student. Teachers can utilize various standard teaching methods or they can be unconventional and use the pattern of the tile on the floor to teach the musical form of a piece. Holistic instruction enables the student to use mathematical concepts to figure out the meter or listen to the sounds of nature to understand the aesthetic beauty of a piece of music.
Students who learn to view music from a holistic perspective increase their creative and reasoning abilities. These strengths transfer to all areas of their lives.
