Gender Based Choirs

The Valley View choral program is built on the philosophy that gender-based choirs are one of the most effective ways to introduce young adolescents to singing. Both boys and girls typically experience the most dramatic change in their voices during the middle school years; a wealth of research highlights the many benefits of single-gender choir experiences during this time.

We are proud of the outstanding tradition of young women’s and young men’s choirs at Valley View and equally pleased to offer opportunities for all students to perform high-quality mixed repertoire.

The links on this page are included for parents and colleagues as resources on the topic of gender-based choral music education. Feel free to contact one of the Valley View directors for more information.
