We believe that teaching music is a huge privilege, and we take our responsibilities as educators seriously. We have 3 core values that we seek to cultivate at SVA – Developing Confidence, Unleashing Creativity and Building Community.
This outcome of learning music cannot be underestimated, and its impact is life-changing. At SVA developing confidence and self-esteem is an integral part of the learning process, and we love hearing reports from parents about how much their children have grown in self-confidence as a result of their work with us. SVA provides a safe place for students to explore and develop their gifts. They are encouraged and empowered to find their own style and sound, rather than simply copying what they hear on the radio.
