My name is Mr. William Gula, and I am honored to have been selected as the new director of bands at St. John Fisher School. It is a pleasure for me to take on this role, as the SJF Band Program has, over many years, developed a fine reputation established by Mr. Frank Manna and continued under the faithful directorship of Mr. Ken Stiak. I am also thrilled to be working as a part of the great team of highly qualified educators led by our new principal Mr. Jim Fornaciari.
I have been teaching band in the Chicago Catholic Schools for the past 27 years, and am no stranger to your area as I currently instruct the programs at several local schools. I am excited to meet current band students and parents, as well as new interested families at our SJF Band Information Meeting which will be held in September. More information regarding this meeting and our program will be forthcoming. I am truly enthusiastic about the possibilities and future of the SJF Band Program and look forward to working with our talented young musicians.
