The District Pays Only 

A Fraction of the Cost 

Of the CVMS Music Program

The SDUHSD District funds only a portion of the program, primarily providing The Music Director's salary and the music program's facilities. 


However, there are a great many other expenses associated with running the music program that are not provided by the District.  These essential items are provided by the CVMS Music Boosters, including but not limited to: 

  • paying professional musicians and experienced coaches to provide individualized instruction for students during class time

  • purchasing instruments for use by students who cannot afford an instrument

  • fees for participation in and transportation to festivals and competitions

  • sheet music and other supplies

  • maintenance and repair of instruments

Administrative Overhead: 


Since CVMS Music Boosters is staffed entirely by volunteers, we maintain a very low operating overhead (less than 2% of our budget) so you can be assured that more than 98% of your contribution goes directly to benefit the children and the music program.
