Ignite That Passion – TJ Starts School Movement
Musician and singing sensation Teddyson John recently commenced his school initiative ‘Ignite That Passion’ throughout the island’s secondary schools. In recent visits to the Sir Ira Simmons Secondary School and St. Joseph’s Convent, TJ’s message was clear: Choose to live a passionate life!
The programme will continue throughout the school year and is specifically targeted at music students. In these sessions, Teddyson has one-onone interactions with the students through a range of open and thought-provoking discussions. Some of the topics include pursuing a professional music career, types of careers in music, the importance of discipline to the art but most importantly finding passion and pursuing it.
On the topic of ‘Passion’ the message goes further as TJ explains to students that “You don’t need to tie passion to one single activity or thing. Passion is a form of energy inside of you, and you can choose to bring it out at any point in time. You just need to figure out how. And once you do that it all falls into place almost magically.”
On commenting on his decision to embark on this journey: “There is so much talent among our young people and I wanted to encourage them to channel their energies into something positive and to not hold back on what they have to share.”
As TJ and his team continue to work towards 2015, fans and supporters can expect a plethora of high quality music, more philanthropic work and community involvement and of course an explosive concert. Undoubtedly, the brand of ‘Love. Passion. Music.’ is increasingly becoming infectious not just in the realm of the music world, but in the community at large.
