Mission Statement 

It is the goal of the Lehigh Valley Academy Music Department to cultivate students' interest in a lifelong engagement with music by encouraging each student to develop his or her own musical skills to the highest possible level.  We follow the aims and process laid out in the Middle Years Program of the International Baccalaureate to promote knowing and understanding music, developing musical skills, creative thinking, and responding to music.  To that end, we strive to build high caliber ensembles, and classes that facilitate  students' participation with quality music of historical, cultural, and technical significance.
