Keeping Musical Traditions Alive in Louisiana

This is Jeremy Williams’ fourteenth year teaching band. He is the band director of the Marrero Middle School Mustang Band in Marrero, Louisiana. Williams has been playing music for the last thirty years. He started playing at the young age of seven when the trombone was bigger than him. Williams grew up in a family surrounded by music. His father played the trombone, which in turn inspired his brother to start playing, and then when Williams came along, he saw everyone having fun playing music, so he had to join in too.
