A local school teacher and musician wants to bring back music programs in schools that can’t afford to keep them.

Craig Tessone, an Akin Grade School teacher and musician, wants to bring students that experience by bringing music back to schools.

“It has taken me to places I’ve never dreamed of,” Tessone said. “I’ve gotten to sing and perform in front of lots of people. I’ve written original songs and gotten to record in Nashville.”

Tessone said his tutoring program remains in the planning stages but he hopes to teach groups of 15 kids once a week at several schools.
