Great Valley Music Parents Association

Supporting Music Programs in Great Valley School District

Next Meeting Monday, November 6, 7pm: Rm 222 at GVHS

GVMPA supports music students and their teachers at GVHS, GVMS and Great Valley elementary schools in all vocal and instrumental programs. GVMPA's primary function is to provide funds for programs, activities, musical instruments, uniforms, formalwear, and other equipment, in order to fulfill needs that fall outside the GVSD music department's regular operating budget.

Login to Charms!

Many volunteers are needed, please consider helping! Volunteer sign-ups are done through the Charms site.
