Valley Catholic Music School
Our Music School for teaching private lessons is located in the west wing of the Convent of the Sisters of St. Mary of Oregon. Our diverse faculty attract talented students from throughout the Portland metropolitan area. We strive to make music education available to everyone who is interested through scholarships, summer programs, and instrument rental. In addition, Valley Catholic Music School serves the community at large through classes and programs for students from other schools and area adults. Valley Catholic Music School staff and alumni have performed at venues ranging from Timber Soccer Games to the Oregon State Capitol. In addition to these special events, all music students have three opportunities for public performance each year. We invite you to come see them perform!
