Here comes another great year, Guardians. Welcome to our new members, and their families. We are very proud of the work we do in our music classes and expect that you will grow as musicians and music consumers.
We are a music making team comprised of singers, the director, the accompanist and the parents. As young artists, arts advocates and mentors, we all have an important role to play as we have a successful year of music making. This year will be another year of incredible growth- and I cannot wait to see what we can achieve together.
Looking forward,Mrs. Monika Tabor
