When you walk into the classroom wing of Wallace Hall at 11:00 a.m. during the week, the music emanating from the band room will delight you and most likely cause your feet to move with the beat. There is a strong resemblance to New Orleans jazz that is currently filling the hall and inspiring the students. The man responsible for this upbeat music is Matt Leder, the new music director at Gadsden State.
