The music program is second to none. As a former student, the information that I obtained at Vap has taken me through my adult life. I was able to take that foundation into college where I majored in music and now I am still a vocalist and have done several productions professionally to boot. Vap groomed my talent and I am forever grateful. Thanks Ms. Ellis!!!!
