Vaughn Elementary Music Program
Mission Statement
The mission of the program is to meaningfully engage students in the exploration of standards-based music concepts that promote greater understanding of the discipline and the enjoyment of music-making.  The program lays a foundation of basic knowledge regarding both orchestral and vocal music, and stimulates students to pursue music studies outside of school and in later years.  An aim is to connect music literature with the subjects of language arts, math, social studies, and science in various ways according to the content standards across all of the grade levels in order to develop language proficiency within Vaughn's English language learners.  With an emphasis on vocal training, but with instruction in movement and recorder as well, students learn that making music can form a bridge to unexpected friendships and a stronger sense of community.
