Mr. William Gula

Dear SS. Cyril & Methodius School Families,

My name is Mr. William Gula, and I am honored to have been selected as the director of bands at SS. Cyril & Methodius School.  It is a pleasure for me to take on this role, as the band program has, over many years, thrived under the faithful directorship of Mr. Patrick Mooney.

I have been teaching band in the Chicago Catholic Schools for the past 30 years, and am no stranger to your area as I currently instruct the band programs at several local Catholic schools.  I am excited to meet current band students and parents, as well as new interested families.  Band lessons will be held on Wednesdays during class time (30-minute sessions on a weekly rotation-scheduled basis), beginning on September 8th.   The band students will receive a schedule with the times of their lessons on that day.

To register, please read and sign the School Band Contract form.  This form introduces the tuition payment options and participation policy. Please feel free to make a copy of this form.  One must be signed and returned to Mr. Gula and the other copy may be kept for your records.  Please make band tuition checks payable to, Mr. William Gula.  Or, you can send the payment via ‘Zelle’ using my phone number, (708) 977-0227.

I am truly enthusiastic about the possibilities and future of the SS. Cyril & Methodius School Band Program and look forward to begin working with our talented young musicians.


Mr. William Gula
Band Director
