Under the guidance of Band Director, Mrs. Lisa Boccuti the Poquessing Middle School Jazz Band traveled to the College of New Jersey. While on campus they participated in a Masterclass with the Director of Jazz Studies. As well as receiving coaching, the young musicians played for a Jazz Pedagogy Class at the College. The TCNJ Jazz Band then took the stage and performed for our students. While on campus, the middle school jazz band received a personal tour. A new partnership between Poquessing Middle School and TCNJ has been formed. A partnership that would not have been possible without the Mrs. Boccuti’s vision, talented musicians and our supportive music parents and the Poquessing Music Boosters.
