It's Monday! The start to another great week full of music to keep us sharp, connected, and enjoying our days. Keep a lookout each Monday for a new Monday Morning Message. It's our way of saying hello and bringing a bit of joy to our CCM families.
 
With resources, recommendations, ideas, and performances to enjoy, we're making music education accessible and keeping our music community connected. Our temporary situation still allows us to play and share music and ideas. Thank you for making this happen, and please, share with us your ideas for our Monday Message.
