Villa's Director of Bands to Serve as VP of WMEA

Ben Draper is Villa's Director of Bands and Arts Coordinator. He's been instrumental (no pun intended) in making our music program one of the strongest among our area's independent schools, offering Beginning Band, Concert Band, Symphonic Band, Modern Band, Beginning Orchestra, String Orchestra and Villa Voices. Not only did Ben recently complete his Master's Degree in Music Education from the American Band College at Central Washington College, he's also serving this year as the Vice President of the Elliott Bay region of the Washington Music Educators Association. The WMEA believes that a comprehensive music education is a critical component of a basic education for all students. Congratulations, Ben!
