Students attending Susquehanna Valley Schools have the opportunity to participate in a quality music program that includes courses in music appreciation and general music.

The Vocal/Choral program begins in our elementary schools with general music classes. At the middle school, students take general music in 6th and 7th grades. These classes introduce the recorder, guitar, singing, notation and listening to the many different genres of music using band, orchestra and choral literature. Opportunities also exist for students to participate in band, chorus and orchestra.

The senior high offers courses that are electives. Students may choose band, orchestra, chorus, Music Theory or Piano Lab to satisfy the requirements of one unit in music or art for graduation.

Instrumental lessons for strings, woodwinds, brass and percussion are started in grade 4. The middle school and high school have bands, orchestras and choruses which are also an important part of the music program. Several concerts are performed yearly throughout the district.

In addition to the band, orchestra and chorus offerings, there are jazz ensembles in grades 6-12 and percussion ensemble in grades 9-12, and a high school Pep Band.
The SV School District is a member of the Broome County and New York State School Music Associations. Membership allows students to participate individually or as a unit at the All-County Elementary and Middle School festivals and at sectional, state and national events.

The music staff, administration and students are proud of their achievements in competition and in their service to school and community.
