Welcome to Music Class at TES!

Welcome to music class at TES!  
 
We have a lot of fun in music class at TES.  When it is your day to come to music, I know you will enjoy yourself.  At TES, we experience music through listening, performing, creating, movement and games.  It is more than just appreciating music, it is about making music!
