More Information

I hope you all are as excited as I am to start a new school year! My name is Brandon Lias and I am the 5th grade Band Director in Athens City Schools at East, West and Morrison-Gordon Elementary Schools. This year is exciting because your child has the opportunity to join the 5th grade Band. 5th grade Band is a voluntary music opportunity to learn in-depth instrumental music training. We teach flute, clarinet, alto saxophone, trumpet, trombone, and percussion. There are other instruments, but they can be discussed with me via email.


To discuss this opportunity and provide a medium for questions, there is an informational meeting being held on August 28th at 6:00 at the Athens High School Auditorium. There will be an additional "Instrument Fitting" that are an individual 10 minute time slot on either August 29th and 30th from 4-7pm at the Athens High School Auditorium. Sign ups for times will be available at the Informational Meeting.


I hope to see you all there. If there are any questions before the meeting, please let me know via email at blias@athenscsd.org
