The Amador Valley marching band has been hovering around 250 members including color guard. Mr Grantham has been impacting, in a very positive way, nearly 10% of a large high school for over ten years.
Our daughters who went through his program both became part of a team "bigger than themselves' and it helped with their maturity, self discipline and enthusiasm. Mr G has delivered great leadership and innovative programs (like the performances in London.)
Most Band Parents have said thanks to him plenty of times... now it is great to see School District recognition.

Congratulations, Mr. Grantham. This award is totally deserved. Mr. Grantham has been the most influential teacher in the lives of both of my kids. Pleasanton and Amador are so fortunate that Mr. Grantham came here.
