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.
