About Me

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.
