St. Catherine of Alexandria School Band

Mr. William Gula – Director


About Our Band Program:

The St. Catherine of Alexandria School Band offers the opportunity to gain musical knowledge to any student in grades four through eight.  


Learning to play a musical instrument is a true challenge requiring a good amount of time and effort. The musical knowledge and skill gained in the St. Catherine School Band can be carried forward into high school, college, and even into a professional career. The St. Catherine School Band provides our students with the opportunity to play their instrument in an environment of teamwork, discipline, cooperation, and friendly competition. Through several public performances each year, the band serves to instill confidence and pride in a job well done.


How To Join:   

Please contact our director, Mr. William Gula at (708) 977-0227 or mr.gula@aol.com, for information regarding the cost for participation and registration.  Instruments offered include; Flute, Clarinet, Saxophone, Trumpet, Trombone, and Snare Drum. If you already own an instrument, please send it to the first lesson so we can inspect for proper working conditions.


If you need to obtain an instrument, rental is your best option. Rentals start at  $19.00 per month and can be ordered by calling PM Music Center at  (630) 978‐9927. Or you can order on their website; www.pmmusiccenter.com.  PM Music will deliver the instrument and lesson book to St. Catherine, so you will never have to go to the store. If you already have an instrument, a lesson book will be needed (Yamaha Band Student  – Book 1). The cost for the book is approximately $8.00, and can be purchased through PM Music Center or other music stores in the area.
