Welcome to the Gateway Band site
During this shut-down period, parents and students can access GMS Band information here or in SmartMusic or through the student in-district Canvas site.
The SmartMusic "due date" of April 4 can be ignored; I will not be updating the online grades until I recieve permission from the school district. In fact, you can ignore the term "assignment"; our SmartMusic assessments should not presently be considered "assignments" but rather "enrichment" activites.
I will continue to send "music titles" during the shut-down but they are optional and will carry no grade implications. Here's some good news: Any playing on a band instrument is not wasted time; SmartMusic can provide many opportunities to explore music and other instruments during our time apart.
Although I am retiring at the end of the the 2019-2020 school year, I am very happy to announce that Mr. Morgan will be replacing me at Gateway in the fall. I have known Mr. Morgan for about 7 years and know that he will be an encellent addition to Gateway and will provide a solid vision for the next phase of our Gateway Bands.
