YMV, a 501c3 nonprofit organization, is in its third decade of serving homeschool families and the community with a faculty and staff of about 30 professional adults dedicated to teaching and training students from preschool through high school. Our students come from all over the Hampton Roads/Tidewater area of Virginia, including Virginia Beach, Chesapeake, Norfolk, Suffolk, Portsmouth, Smithfield, and Hampton. Some even come from as far away as Williamsburg and North Carolina! Our music teachers, who are visible in the community as professional performers, symphony members, college-level teachers, and church directors, provide opportunities for private lessons on most instruments as well as multiple levels of ensembles (band, strings, and choir). We also offer a wide variety of other music classes including theory, conducting, specialized ensembles, and music technology. Our commitment is not only to teach music, but to teach life lessons and Godly principles in a social environment that fosters encouragement and mutual support.
While music is our mainstay, YMV also offers other selected academic courses, a wide range of art classes, and drama classes that perform in the fall and spring. These courses are geared toward the academic and fine arts needs of families with 6th-12th grade students that attend the music program.
The YMV program is intended to enhance and support – not replace – the homeschooling experience. In addition, we are dedicated to assisting homeschooling parents to provide their children with extracurricular musical opportunities, such as summer classes, seminars, concert opportunities, performances and ministry outreach.
While we are a Christian program and our faculty and staff must have a Christian testimony, we are open to homeschool students of any faith. We invite you to join us for a musical experience that is more than mere notes and sounds; it is a symphony of life!
