Hello and welcome to the 2019-20 school year! I am J. Anthony Gaskin, Director of Bands at Greenwood High School and I am super excited to have this ooportunity to serve students through music; more specifically, band!
Music is an integral part of a complete and well-rounded education. It challenges the student cognitively and kinesthetically. Emotional expression and intrinsic values are realized through the study and performance of music. The goal of the Greenwood HS Golden Eagle Band Program is to develop an appreciation for music as well as natural musical abilities while achieving excellence in music performance. With this goal in mind, the director offers a positive approach to the learning of instrumental music. Through this instruction, opportunities exist to promote self-esteem, teamwork, individual and group accomplishments, and great musical experiences.
