It's time to start TaVaci! YAY!! We have some fabulous music....DUH....planned for all ages! We have our Christmas Concert scheduled! It is set for Saturday, Dec. 5th--likely the time will be 3:00. It will be held at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center. ( I LOVE this facility!) 

The BPAC has fabulous seating, AND acoustics. We can hear the kids (defeats the WHOLE purpose if we can't) We provide transportation to and from rehearsals! The kids LOVE this! You simply drive TO and FROM Blackfoot--ONCE. 

Here's a copy of our postcard--being mailed as well to all registered students. BUT...even though you may not "receive" an actual card, here is your "virtual" card now! Bring your pillow the first week of class! We start Sept 14th for the 3rd-6th grade students and Sept 15th for the Pre- 2nd grade students. 

We are VERY pleased to introduce our teachers who both have a VAST amount of TaVaci experience! Meet them here:

Heather Judy
3rd-6th Grade Teacher

Heather literally has been IN TaVaci for 23 PLUS years! Apparently, she can NOT get enough! J . She started singing with TaVaci at the age of 4 and hasn’t stopped to take a breath! Well, maybe TWO.. Heather is now an elementary school teacher at Edahow Elementary in her 5th year. She is married to Jerimiah Judy and the PROUD mother of cute Liberty and Bryson. We are thrilled that Heather is back in “full-force” Heather is also a gifted choreographer and creates MUCH of the staging that our students display for our TaVaci concerts. Thanks Heather!

Andrea Evans
Pre-2nd grade Teacher

We would ALSO like to Welcome to our staff, Andrea Evans! Andrea is VERY familiar with TaVaci! She grew up in Brigham City, UT .She began her singing career at the age of 4 with TaVaci.  She sang all throughout her high school years and into college.  She has a degree in Early Childhood Education and has taught preschool for 3 years.  Her favorite things are teaching and singing.  What better way to do so than with TaVaci?  Andrea is the wife of a counselor and the mother of three fun-loving kiddos.  In her spare time, Andrea enjoys reading, baking, playing the piano, singing with her sisters, and hanging out with family and friends.  Welcome BACK (we should say…) to TaVaci Andrea!

Summer 2014!


A small taste of WHAT we DO!! Fun Times!!

It's SUMMER 2014! 

I can hardly believe it myself! But soon it will be fall. AND what does THAT mean? You guessed it...TAVACI TIME!! Before I fill you in HOW to register and what the class days and times are, I would like to take a moment and answer a few questions regarding our group.

Question: How long have you been here? 
Answer: We have been established in Pocatello for almost 30 years! YUP! That's correct! There's a ZERO behind that 3! And...we have been successful for all 30 of them! WHY?? I'm going to tell you! We LOVE kids AND we love to teach kids the value and true enjoyment of good, and entertaining music. 

Question: What are some of the things you include in your class? 
Answer: Every child will have that opportunity to grow and learn the basics of correct vocal technique, rhythm, theory, pitch, harmonies, and lastly but certainly NOT least the ability to express themselves through song using the dramatic tools we teach them! BUT, even more important than those skills, WE have FUN while doing it! Our teachers can NOT be beat...anywhere! I truly do believe that, and those that have been part of our program can attest to that! 

Question: How many performances do you have each year? 
Answer: We have two major concerts each year. One is Christmas, and the other in the Spring, generally in May. Occasionally, we will have small performances during the holidays, or early spring. All concerts are FREE to the public! 

Question: How often do you meet for class and how long are the classes? Answer: Pre-2nd grade students meet weekly for 45 minutes; 
                3rd-6th also meet weekly, for an hour. 

Question: Do you audition your students? 
Answer: Absolutely NOT! But you won't know that by listening to them sing. We will put our students up vocally next to any group in the city. We also feel that students should not have to compete to sing! All children should and CAN learn HOW to sing. There are few exceptions to that rule, but overall, ALL children will be included in TaVaci. 

Question: How do I sign UP?
Answer:Just go to www.tavacipocatello.blogspot.com and fill in the registration form! We will begin classes in Sept 2014 (the exact date will be posted soon!!) 

Mondays 3:50-4:50 3rd-6th (Boys) 
                                         3rd-4th (Girls) 

Mondays 5:00-6:00 5th-6th Girls

Tuesdays 3:30-4:15 Pre- K 

Tuesdays 4:30-5:15 1st 2nd

Well--here we are AGAIN! It's almost time for our concert! December 7th is the magic day! We will hold our concert at the Blackfoot Performing Arts Center 870 S. Fisher Blackfoot, ID. Concerts are FREE to the public and we LOVE to fill it up! That MAY be a huge task considering there are 1200 seats at this beautiful, clean facility! We are excited that there is a venue such as this to "show off" our kids! Please check your e mail for rehearsal days and times! We are certain that all who attend this years concert will be filled with the Christmas spirit and it will carry us all over to the new year! YIKES! 2014??? Really? Who would've ever "thunk" that we would be here? NOT me! We already have some "fun" stuff planned for the SPRING semester--if you are registered NOW, you will not need to re- register for the 2nd semester! You are already enrolled! BUT...if you have other children or friends that would be excited to join us in January,we need to know AS SOON AS YOU CAN TELL US!! Check out this cute new logo! You will see it on our sweatshirts in the Christmas concert on the 7th. We also have a performance scheduled for the 12th of Dec. to be held at the LDS Alameda Stake Center-- (across from Tendoy Elementary AND the OLD Winco) We will perform at 7:00 and should be DONE by 7:30. Please have your students there NO later than 6:45 in costume. We will start with the younger students (Tuesday classes) and then the Monday Classes. BUT they will ALL sing the opening and closing numbers. GREAT music for this semester! The kids have LOVED it and we have LOVED them, LOVING IT! Happy Thanksgiving and Merry Christmas to ALL!! Cindy
