Welcome to

Meigs Middle School Chorus!

My name is Jamie Hayes and I am so excited to be the new Chorus director here at Meigs! I know how amazing this school is and I am excited to get to know every single one of you. So you know a little about me, I have a background in performance and I have performed professionally in Musical Theater around the county. I hold a BA in Music from Valdosta State Universty. I also teach private voice and piano and have taught Kindermusik. While I originally come from GA, 7 years ago I moved from New York City to live in Fort Walton Beach. As some of you may know, I have taught the last two years at Pryor Middle School and will continue to do so this year alongside Meigs. This will be a different year, but I am confident we will be awesome! As you know, it takes a village. We can make this program grow and prosper, however I cannot do it alone. Parental involvement is extremely necessary, whether it is be as a volunteer, chaperone, or simply being supportive of you student’s involvement in Chorus. I am here for your kids in every way. Feel free to contact me with any questions or concerns.

Sincerely,

Jamie Hayes
Chorus Director
Clifford Meigs Middle School

All State and All County Information for 2019 - 2020 

*****All County and All State happen all around the same time. All County is a great way to prep for All State so we require All State kiddos to participate in both All County and All State. You may only do All County if you choose. Both are amazing opportunities that can go on resumes and help you grow in your music. All State is auditioned, All county goes through me. All county has hard music, however, if you are willing to work come on!
