WELCOME TO BAND 2024-2025!

The Greenbrier Band Program has a strong culture of quality music-making, a tradition made possible by the many superb students in the school. Music creates unique opportunities for expression, discovery, collaboration, and joy. In the band, we are committed to supporting the individual development of every student and empowering them every step of the way. 

Mr. Ryan Bratton is excited to join Greenbrier Middle School for the 2024-2025 school year. Originally from the mountains of Asheville, NC, Mr. Bratton attended college at the University of Georgia (Go Dawgs!) where he earned his Bachelor’s degree in Music Education. While at UGA, he marched sousaphone with the Redcoat Band. His primary instrument is tuba, and he enjoys playing euphonium, trombone, and piano as well. He loves to be active and play all types of sports, especially basketball and tennis. In his free time, he enjoys spending time with his two cats, Zoe and Leo. Mr. Bratton lives in Evans with his beautiful wife named Keelin, who is a talented musician herself. 

Mr. Bratton is a member of the National Association for Music Education, the Georgia Music Educators Association, the National Band Association, and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia.
