Welcome to the world of SJMA and a glimpse of a year that has been unlike any other, with new adaptations, unexpected surprises, and emerging patterns. Music lessons were offered both on site and at home, and to our delight the result was something akin to a lovingly-crafted patchwork quilt: charming and beautiful. Most importantly, children continued to learn and to grow. “Hope and Gratitude in Ten Scenes” offers a selection of our students’ successes during this challenging time for us all.
