For immediate release:
As many parents abruptly found out this last week, Know Chess! has closed down due to unspecified reasons. Thousands of young Bay Area chess players are now faced with the possibility of not having a school chess club. The Torres Chess and Music Academy is prepared to offer its services to save chess at these schools.
The Torres Chess and Music Academy is a nonprofit organization dedicated to providing instruction and opportunities to as many children as possible in the areas of chess and music. All of our instructors are highly accomplished educators who have a transcendent talent in their area of specialty. The TCAMA offers affordable classes throughout California and will custom design these programs to fit the needs of the schools. The Torres approach to teaching chess has been used since 1998 and is widely recognized as one of the main driving forces behind the sudden rise in the quality of scholastic chess in California. TCAMA schools have had the honor of winning the official K-6 State Chess Champions in the Calchess State Championships the last four years in a row.
More information on our program can be found at www.ChessandMusic.com
