CMS Welcomes "New" Band Director
Hello folks!!! I’m Jeff Gossett, the “new” Director of Bands at Cedartown Middle School. I am very excited about the opportunity to serve the students and parents of Cedartown. As I may be new to you, I am not new to the band directing profession. I have served as a band director for 26 years in Alabama. The groups that I have taught have won many awards and contests. We have performed for Governors, Senators, Representatives and other heads of state. Outside of the teaching profession, I have served as a judge and clinician throughout the Southeast. I have performed with the Gadsden and Rome Symphonies as a percussionist. I’ve played saxophone with the Heritage Hall Jazz Band in Talladega; and I am presently serving as a bassist and percussionist at Eagle Point Baptist Church, where I serve as a deacon. I have my Bachelor’s and Master’s Degrees in Instrumental Music Education from Jacksonville State University. While attending JSU I served as Drum Major of the Marching Southerners. During my time there I met and married the former Stephanie Clay in the A Cappella Choir. We’ve been married for 25 years. We don’t have any children, except for band kids, and a husky named Sophie.I am a Georgia native; born and raised in Chatsworth. I graduated from Murray County High School in 1982. When I have spare time I love to golf.
