Welcome to the Steele Band website. It is the goal of the directors for this website to be another way for students, parents, community, and supporters of the Knight Band to receive information regarding the Steele band program. Within this website, you will find current and future events. In addition, you will find links to other music sites that may help you to find new ways to foster stronger musical appreciation at home and in our community.

    The best way to reach a director is through email: 

    Steven Deater - sdeater@scuc.txed.net (Director of Bands) 

    Buck Palmer - jpalmer@scuc.txed.net (Assistant Director of Bands/Director of Percussion) 

    Miguel Martinez - mamartinez@scuc.txed.net (Assistant Director of Bands/Director of Marching and Jazz Band) 

    Linda Guerra - lguerra@scuc.txed.net (Guard Sponsor)




  • Remote Learning

    All of our band events are currently on hold until further notice.  In an effort to continue progress, students should join the appropriate Google Classroom for their class period.  Students need to have the ability to record video and upload to Google Classroom. The first assignment will be posted in Google Classroom on Wednesday, March 25 and due by 11:55pm on Sunday, March 29.  Students should also be ready to access the free Zoom app so we can have live discussions.  Students do not need to create an account with Zoom, just use the access codes for the Zoom meetings they are attending.   


    Stay safe and healthy, with positivity and patience, as we figure all of this out together.
