Director of Bands,  Jazz Bands and Chorus


Since coming on board as Music Director at Stanley Intermediate School in Lafayette in 1986, Athayde has expanded the size, scope and perception of music both within the district and throughout the greater Lamorinda community. Beginning with 3 classes of 150 students in a modest portable, he now directs 6 band classes, and two early morning jazz ensembles in a newly constructed music center, touching the lives of over 300 students.
