Instrumental Music Pam Hayden
My name is Pam Hayden and I teach 6th and 7th grade band at Parkview Middle School, including 6/7 Concert Bands, 7th grade Jazz Band, and lessons for all instruments. in addition, I teach primarily woodwind lessons to students in Ankeny’s 6-12 south feeder program at Southview and Ankeny High School. I also help out with the Ankeny High School Marching Band and accompany students each year at Perry Band Olympics. I am a clarinet player, but enjoying teaching all of the instruments.
I attended Morningside College and received a degree in Music Education. Recently I earned a Master of Teaching Degree with an emphasis in Music from Morningside College. I previously taught in the communities of Graettinger, Boone, and Vinton. I have taught in Ankeny for 12 years, and have spent the last 8 years at Parkview.
I love teaching music, and enjoy seeing the growth in student maturity and skills as they study a musical instrument.
