Hello, my name is Jeff Brath and I am the Elementary Band Director in Crete-Monee School District 201-U. I teach 5th grade Beginning Band and 6th Grade Intermediate Band.
I really enjoy teaching music, especially teaching younger students how to play instruments and getting them to play at a high level.
Prior to coming to Crete-Monee I taught thirteen years in Dolton School District 149 teaching Beginning and Middle School Band, three years teaching band at Clay High School in South Bend, IN, and three years teaching band at Archbishop Stepinac High School in White Plains, NY. I have a Bachelors of Music from SUNY Potsdam College in Potsdam, NY, and a Masters of Music Education from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.
When I’m not teaching, I enjoy playing music, spending time with my family, hiking, mountain climbing , rock and ice climbing, golfing, working out, reading, and watching sports!
Please contact me at 708-367-2720 or at firstname.lastname@example.org if you have questions regarding the Crete-Monee Elementary School Bands. I look forward to teaching your child, and helping them to bring out their best!
