Mr. Christian Baughman
6-7 Instrumental Music
Hello, I'm Christian Baughman, Instrumental Music Instructor for the Ankeny Community Schools. I teach instrumental music and jazz band at Parkview Middle School as well as assist with band and lessons at Southview and Ankeny High School. My goal is to help all of my students create and perform music by instructing the knowledge, skills, and big ideas that are essential for instrumental music performance.
I'm a 1997 graduate of Drake University. I earned my Master of Music Education degree from Boston University in 2008. I have been teaching band since 1997 and have been with the ACSD since 2008. My previous experience in 5-12 instrumental music education includes positions in the Des Moines, Newton, and Johnston, IA school districts. I have also spent several seasons on the brass staff of the Colts Drum and Bugle Corps of Dubuque, IA. Outside of school hours I serve on the faculty of the Des Moines Symphony Academy teaching private trumpet lessons. I enjoy all of the variety, challenges, and everyday victories that make up the band experience.
My responsibilities for the Hawk Bands include time at AHS, SV, and PV.
If you have questions about instrumental music at Parkview, please contact me. I am glad to help!
