New York State School Music Association President Dr. David Gaines recently visited seventh-grade band students at Finley Middle School. 

During his time at Finley, Dr. Gaines led a master class, working with students on music to be performed as part of the band's spring concert as well as their upcoming performances at the NYSSMA Major Organization Festival.

“The students greatly enjoyed the experience with Dr. Gaines and were delighted to receive a great deal of positive feedback,” seventh-grade band director Brittney Frank Rifkind said. "Having Dr. Gaines come to Finley Middle School was a real honor. He is truly a master teacher, and the students were thrilled to work with him.”
