LVHS Choir  Students &Parents

Hello from the Choir Office! 


The Las Vegas High School Vocal Music Department has a rich and proud history of excellence in the Clark County School District, the state of Nevada and the United States.  It is our goal that through music and singing, we can educate tomorrow's leaders and give them life lessons to continue throughout their post high school journey.  Despite the recent challenges, we know one thing to be true:  A LAS VEGAS HIGH SCHOOL education is timeless.  


As dedicated members of our choir program, you have demonstrated trust in the director, our choir leadership, our program goals, and music education partners.  Your commitment means so much.  Continue to do your part and take a little time to schedule choir into your daily at home work.  The 15 minutes you spend singing, will be good therapy and also an awesome break from your academic homework.  The following is additional information to assist you and your parent/guardian:

  • The CANVAS Home Page offers detailed information - please read through the information carefully
  • Students and Parents are encouraged to sign up for office hours (private lesson referrals, quick music conversations, grade update, etc.)
  • Students must login to Canvas through Clever (see Home page for choir calendar)
  • Make-up work and most written assignments will be listed in Canvas. 
  • Grades are posted in Infinite Campus
  • The Choir fee of $40.00 will be applied to the LVHS Choir Department - Choir T-Shirts, Performance Projects, Music Purchases, and Event Supplements.  The Uniform rental fee is $40.00 and will be due in October - 2021.  Payment plans and Fundraisers will be implemented to help alleviate choir fees.
  • Students and parents may pay online at: lvwildcats.com
  • Please do not create a new account - students should follow the login instructions on the home page.
  • Go to Online Store (top right) - Then Performing Arts (left)
  • Choir Fee - look for Choir Software - No Photo Available and the cost of $40.00
  • This $40.00 fee is due in August - 2021.
  • Our Handbook Contracts - pages 22-25 are due August 20, 2021.  Please ask your student about these forms, as they require parent signatures.  
  • The new CCSD/LVHS Performance Contracts will be available in hard copy form in class.  Email is also available.  Students without the submitted contracts will not be allowed to participate in any choir performances and will not receive most Summative grades.
  • Email:  [email protected]
  • The Choir program is focused around this Motivational Framework:
    • Inclusion
    • Attitude
    • Meaning
    • Competence

It is my hope that every student will feel involved and will try to experience new things musically.  Parents: please assist your child by asking questions.  Our goal is to improve through practice, but the rehearsal time at home, is the main 'homework' for a performance based class.  Even if students spend 15 minutes per day on the songs assigned, they will progress in their singing.  


Please feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns. I can be reached via email at:  [email protected] or 702-799-0180 ext. 4050.


All my best,


Mrs. Tyler :)
