Stakeholders and Constituents

We strive to strengthen the authentic experience of teaching and learning of music in a variety of educational settings representative of urban, suburban, and rural schools of diverse socio-economic status, ethnic make-up, and educational philosophy.

Recognizing that quality of life is deeply influenced by the quality of personal relationships, we seek to provide an environment that is supportive of collegiality and friendships, and allows opportunities to contribute to the community.

Using current communication technology to consistently and proactively inform the public about VanderCook College of Music, we strive to provide for two-way communication between and among the school’s supporters, and to expand the scope of our communication.

Through coursework, outreach, and professional development, we advocate on behalf of three causes: inclusion of music in our schools, selection of music education as a profession, and the advancement of selected music educators to positions in higher education.
