Welcome to the homepage for the Mount Gilead Bands! My name is Ross Runyan and I am the Band Director at Mount Gilead High School and Middle School. I am originally from Pickerington, Ohio, and I received my Bachelors of Music Education degree from The Ohio State University. While at Ohio State, I performed in the Marching Band, Wind Symphony, and Symphony Orchestra. I currently perform with the Brass Band of Columbus and I have held positions with the Sinclair College Community Wind Symphony and the Ohio Valley British Brass Band. Before joining the staff at Mount Gilead, I taught instrumental music for two years in the Dayton area.
My goal is to develop and maintain a superior instrumental music program while teaching my students the values of excellence, teamwork, and lifelong musicianship.
