Welcome to the 2023-2024 school year!!! I am Robert Gidron and I will be the Band/Chorus director for Murphey Middle School. I am also the Assistant band director at T.W Josey. This is my third year and I am excited to be working with your children this year. Parents can contact me directly via the Google classroom number listed and also via email and class dojo. I am a graduate of Jackson State University, and also Purdue University. I hold a bachelor's in Music Education and a Master of Science in Education. I am currently pursuing my ED.S in education at Augusta State University. I teach and play multiple instruments in many different genres of music. Last school year I was honored to receive New Teacher of The Year from the fine arts department. My previous year I took the band to Large Group Performance Ensemble, this was an esteem honor for the Band Program and the school. When I am not playing music, I enjoy vacations at the beach, reading and studying real state, and family church time on Sundays. Again, I am excited to serve as your Band/ Chorus director for Murphey Middle School this year!!!
* I also want to announce with parents consent eight graders can experience marching in the Sonic Boom of the South at Josey! Eighth graders have a chance to experience the marching band. Middle school band members will play at least one Murphey football game and Basketball game this season, this includes all grades. Please feel free to email me with any questions and concerns.
