I am excited for another musical year. Sign ups for the 2019-2020 school year will be taking place the first 2 weeks of school. Be on the lookout for the paperwork to come home in your child's backpack. After 12 years in a high school band setting, I came to Garrettford. It is my eighth year here at Garrettford. I enjoy working with your students and am looking forward to making music with them this school year
