Mrs. Jocelyn Sciortino-Shades


My name is Mrs. Sciortino-Shades (I go by Mrs. S), and I am thrilled to direct the music program at Excelsior Academy. 

Hiking, biking, reading and keeping up with my husband and kids are the things that I live for. Making music is the cherry on top. 

There is an awesome world of music to explore, and I hope you will be excited to explore it with me.  In exploring the world of music, you will have opportunities to both play and write music. The true magic in my life is working with students who want to create music. My motto as a teacher: “You can do hard things......and it's going to be FUN!”  I can't wait to explore music with you!
