James Tebbetts, MCMS Composition Student

James Tebbetts composes chamber works for winds, strings, and piano. James, who earned Master’s Degrees from both the University of New Hampshire and Rivier University, has been an adult student at MCMS since May 2005.

At the end of 2012 he retired from a career in software engineering, freeing up his time to follow a musical passion.

On behalf of the faculty, staff, students, and Board of Directors at the Manchester Community Music School, we would like to extend a very, heartfelt congratulation to Jim Tebbetts, on all his accomplishments.

Jim’s dedication and commitment to music and music education is truly inspiring. Music is a creative expression of ourselves, it allows us to communicate our feelings and connect with the world around us. Jim is the embodiment of how the gift of music is the gift of a lifetime.

We are all so very proud of you, Jim! Keep playing and keep composing.
