I received my Bachelors of Arts degree from Jacksonville State University in Jacksonville, Alabama in April of 2006.



Hello, my name is Damien Gaiters. I am originally from Calera, Alabama.  I am a 36 year old alumnus of Jacksonville State University, Jacksonville, Alabama, where I received my Bachelor of Arts in Music Education. I decided to go into education because education is very important to me and some of the most influential people in my life are educators.  While at J.S.U. I chose to take an active role in student life. I served as drum major of the Marching Southerners for three years, two of which I was the head drum major. I played in several ensembles including: The Marching Southerners, Symphonic Band, Tuba/Euphonium Ensemble, J.S.U. Brass Choir and several others.  I am a member of Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia where I served as Secretary, 1st Vice president, and 2nd Vice President. I am also a member of MENC and GMEA.  

After graduating my wife, Stephanie and I, decided to move to Georgia where we both educate and influence tomorrow’s leaders. I also plan to return to school and earn a masters degree in Music Education and eventually a doctoral degree in conducting.
