Dear Families,

Happy New Year and Thank you for attending our winter concert. We are still buzzing about how excited we were. Duringthe next few weeks, we will be watching and critiquing our performance. It is essential that young musicians learned to watch and evaluate their own work. As always, if you have taken pictures please share them with me. I enjoy seeing the pictures you've taken. You can forward them to Melissa.kay@teccsjc.org . Having access to photos of their performances aid me in seeing what our parents are seeing and in applying for grants/funding opportunities that bring new experiences to our students.

I am really excited to announce that we will be introducing ukulele into the music curriculum at TECCS. Due to the generous support of the TECCS community, we have funded a classroom set of ukuleles. Thanks to a generous grant through TECCS Arts, we are also working on bringing in a visiting artist who specializes in ukulele and mindfulness. More information will be coming soon.

I have updated the music site to include a section labelled assignments. Under this link, there are some activities that you can use for home practice.

As always, thank you for your continuous support of the arts program at TECCS. 

Musically yours,

Miss Melissa Kay
