Music provides the lifeblood for the health and vitality of the whole community. Along with vocal music and intricacies of lyrics, pupils of Vidya Bhavan also lean to play various musical instruments. This includes Indian instruments like tabla, harmonium, sitar, dholak, khanjari etc. and Western one like guitar, bongo, kongo, jazz drums, mendolin, xylophoneand so on. Invidual talent of the students are given expression in addition to playing in groups (e.g. the school orchestra) in order that they understand the dynamics of group play and the importance of each instrument and note in an symphony. Turn by turn every student gets a chance to perform for weekly assembly as well as special assemblies celebrating festivals.
An in-house band is the pride of the school and when on sports day students march to its tune it is a spectacle worth watching. The vibrant department prepares students for inter-house and inter-school competitions as well as many special occasions.
