Why Should You Support the YVHS Music Department?

We believe that music education is at the very heart of our students’ education and must be part of the curriculum available to all students. The Yucca Valley High School Music Department is an award-winning organization that travels, performs and competes both nationally and throughout Southern California. We have a large and hard-working group of talented students who are passionate about music.  These students will develop skills and habits that will stay with them their entire lives: disciplineteamwork, and leadership.  These young adults will become our future leaders!  Studies show that children involved in music excel at school, and the benefits of the music program continue far beyond graduation.  In fact, Drs. Rena Upitis and Katharine Smithrim assert that “90% of parents report that the arts motivated their kids to learn.”  Our students share a passion for performing and strive for excellence.
