Walton Verona’s Beginning Band Meeting

Students Make Some Great Choices


“Willis Music was invited to Walton Verona’s beginning band meeting by Mrs. Hedges, Director of bands, where new students found themselves making sounds on many different instruments, all while trying to select the one that best fits them. Shana Gatewood, (a Gateway College Music Teacher) was instructing ‘soon-to-be trumpet players’ while Colleen and Michele (from Willis Music) made lots of noise instructing clarinet and trombone. Parents were happy and some great choices were made.”


“Mrs. Hedges starts her students after Christmas break on January 8th. Also new in 2015, she will give birth to her fourth child the around the first of February. Don’t worry, she will have a great substitute and will be greatly involved even after the baby is born. Our congratulations goes out to her and her husband Chris Hedges (Director of bands at Williamstown) and we wish them a happy, healthy baby next year.”
