Ben Heppner Vocal Music Academy's Mission Statement

The Ben Heppner Vocal Music Academy at Heather Heights opened its doors for the first time in September 2012.  The Academy, located in Scarborough, attracts students from all over Scarborough and beyond its borders for Grades 4  to 8.  Students at the BHVMA attend a full day programme in all curriculum subject areas in which music is a core subject that is taught every day as well as being integrated into the other subject areas.  The BHVMA is a performing school where the students have the opportunity to sing every day and to create and make music.  Students are part of a culture that balances academic excellence with personal leadership, character development and innovation! 

The Vocal Music Academy Experience

Students at the Ben Heppner Vocal Music Academy develop musicianship skills that will help them learn to think critically about the music they hear and perform.  A major focus is on developing the musical ear to help students not only perform the music but to hear the music they are singing.  Students also focus on developing sight reading skills that will help them to recognize the various note names and their sounds.
