Music Department

SVA offers one of the widest ranges of music organizations to be found in any academy: two choral organizations, a symphony orchestra, a string ensemble, concert band, handbell ensemble, various small chamber ensembles, Worship and Praise Music instruction, and Music Appreciation class. We believe in the uses and benefits of music and song in education. Private lessons are available for most instruments, including piano and organ. The tradition of high-quality music organizations and performances continues under the guidance of a strong music faculty team. SVA music ensembles have performed in the Eastern U.S., Canada, Central America, and Europe.
