The region served by V.I.S.A. enjoys a long history of commitment to the arts and music. The area supports numerous individual music teachers, school programs, musical organizations, and committed amateurs. However, because these musical resources are dispersed throughout a predominantly rural area, there is a need for a center where people can come together to develop their artistic knowledge and skills. Funding for music and arts programs in many area public schools has been severely curtailed. As a result, high student-to-teacher ratios are not able to adequately meet the individual needs of the students. Artistic choices are also limited within these programs without a strong influence of diverse world cultures. V.I.S.A. offers a variety of lessons and programs for music students of all ages whose school or individual study programs have not provided a sufficient opportunity to meet and work together musically. The school envisions expanding its programs in the future to include dance, fine arts, and unusual cultural instruction in areas such as African, Celtic and Caribbean music and dance, along with the more traditional fine arts instruction. V.I.S.A. has also been responding to increasing demand for outreach programs and has worked in partnership with The Bridge Street School in Middlebury, Vermont, The Killington Mountain School, The Sharon Academy in Sharon, Vermont, Sharon Elementary School in Sharon, Vermont and the Suzuki School of the Killington Music Festival in Killington, Vermont. V.I.S.A. has been contacted by other schools to assist with their music programs as well. As part of V.I.S.A.'s educational mission and its outreach program, its goal is to reach underprivileged students of all ages by providing tuition assistance to students who would not otherwise be able to enroll in V.I.S.A.'s programs.

I am considering applying to your school. Please contact me with further information about your programs. Thank you.
