Mr. Patrick Haymore
Welcome! My name is Patrick Haymore and I am the Director of Bands at Granite Falls Middle School. I am a 2003 graduate of Appalachian State University and have a Bachelor of Music in Music Education. I am currently in my sixteenth year of teaching and my third year at Granite Falls. I started in band when I was in the sixth grade at Central Middle School in Dobson, North Carolina. I was a trumpet player for a couple of months before I switched to tuba. Tuba has been my main instrument ever since!
I am also an avid runner and cyclist. I fell in love with distance running when I was a freshman in high school and have kept it up over the years. This is my second year as the GFMS Track & Field head coach.
My Classroom Mission
The mission of the Granite Falls Middle School Band Program is to provide students with an enriching musical experience: to facilitate students in developing a level of musical growth that will enhance their quality of life and enable them to become lifelong advocates of music.
