Hi! I’m Nathan Newhard and I teach instrumental music at Southview Middle School.  Specifically, I teach the 8th grade and 9th grade bands and direct both Southview JazzHawks jazz bands.  I am also the percussion coordinator for the south feeder systems and Ankeny Marching Hawk Drumline instructor and teach 6-12 lessons at Ankeny High School, Southview Middle School and Parkview Middle School.

I’m a 2005 graduate of Iowa State University.  My previous experience in instrumental music education includes Director of Bands at Pekin-Packwood and Ogden Community Schools.  I also spent several seasons as Percussion Caption Head at the Colt Cadets Drum and Bugle Corps in Dubuque, IA.

Depending on my lesson schedule I am available between 7:45am and 3:45pm via e-mail or voicemail and I will get back to you at my earliest convenience.
