Mr. Adam Brown
Assistant Director of Choral Activities
Hello, my name is Adam Brown and this will be my first year as one of the choir directors at AHS! I have spent the past two years teaching 6-7 choir at Parkview Middle School. I'm so excited to move into this new role in the district and to continue working with the amazing students here! I will be teaching and conducting Ankeny Singers, our 10-12 mixed choir open to anyone and everyone. Additionally, I direct our mixed prep show choir, Perpetual Motion, open to all students 9-12.
I graduated from Urbandale High School in 2012 and continued my education at the University of Northern Iowa, graduating Summa Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree of Music Education in 2016. While at UNI, I had amazing opportunities in choir, Opera, and chamber ensembles. My hope is that I can give my students the same incredible and life-changing experiences through music that I had. I completed my student teaching at Ashland Ridge Elementary (general music) and Ankeny Centennial High School (choir and show choir).
In my free time, I like to be outdoors, doing things such as hiking, fishing, boating, golfing, and playing rugby. I'm a big Chicago sports fan, and I'm sure my students will appreciate the amount of times they hear "Go Cubs Go" playing in the choir room. I have a dog named Capone, but I promise he's nicer than his name makes him out to be.
I look forward to getting to know everyone. Feel free to call, or better yet, email me.
AHS is an awesome school, and I'm really excited to be a part of the amazing community here in Ankeny. Let's have a great year. Go Hawks!
