Welcome to the West Valley Instrumental Music Website

                      Mr. Michael Alcorn, 
                        band instructor

                    Mrs. Leanna Rutka, 
                   orchestra instructor

   I have my own particular sorrows,        loves, delights; and you have yours.    But sorrow, gladness, yearning, hope,   love, belong to all of us, in all times     and in all places.  Music is the only          means whereby we feel these 
      emotions in their universality.    
                        ~ H.A. Overstreet

Band and Orchestra are optional "pull-out" programs that students can 
join starting in the 5th grade.

By "pull-out," we mean classes that your students will come to during the 
regular class day, pulling out of their regular
 class for a period of time to come to receive instruction.

Classes meet twice a week for 40 minutes each time.

We will be coming around to your child's classroom on 
August 21st, 22nd or 23rd 
to explain the program and to send home information regarding the program. 
You may also access that information via the "Useful Forms" link on the menu.

We will be having nighttime meetings on 
AUGUST 28th at 7:00 p.m. at ARVADA WEST HS
AUGUST 30th at 7:00 p.m. at RALSTON VALLEY HS
to explain the program in detail and to give your students the opportunity to 
try out the various instruments of the band or orchestra.

Be looking for that information from your student next week!!

Mr. Alcorn and Ms. Rutka
