What is TMC all about? Check out the slideshow below.
TMC is one of the most important experiences that we offer in our music program. Through fun and intensive music making activites, and group experiences students are able to not only improve musicianship, but also develop confidence, postive relationships with their peers, and leave feeling a deeper sense of engagement with the program and school. Many students reflect on their experience at TMC as transformational, and one of the most influential experiences of their time in high school.
