---A Message from Marisa Sakaguchi----

Thank you to  all TMJ members who performed and attended our first meeting. We had a wonderful program and reception. We appreciate those who brought refreshments, and I thank you for the very thoughtful baby memory book I received on TMJ's behalf. We wish more members could have been there and want to see everyone make an effort to be more involved with TMJ this year. We understand you have busy schedules but to be a part of TMJ and any organization, you need to be present in order to be an active member.


We  expect board members to be present at all meetings and for any board member who cannot attend, please contact me with a valid excuse for your absence prior to the meeting. Members need to attend at least 2 meetings before May to remain active. Current yearbooks are also available once you've paid your $10 membership dues made payable to TMJ to Mrs. Santoso.

We also  encourage you to let your friends at school and your teacher's studios know about TMJ so we can welcome them to join. I've also attached the 2013 Callie McGrath competition guidelines as there are attendance requirements for participation you should know in advance. We thank you for your time and look forward to hearing you perform. Please contact me with any questions or concerns.

   Would you like to perform for the TMJ monthly meeting recital?
