Mr. Chris Mayhew

Hi, I'm Chris Mayhew and I am the Band Director here at Lincolnton Middle School.

I am a graduate from Appalachian State University with two Bachelor’s degrees in Percussion Performance and in Music Education. I am a North Carolina Teaching Fellow, an Eagle Scout, and I have received numerous other honors during my time at ASU including: The Carl Anderson Jr. Memorial Music Scholarship. Hayes School of Music Student Teaching Scholarship, featured soloist with the App State Wind Ensemble, and I was chosen to be the Undergraduate Student Speaker for ASU's December 2015 Graduation. I have toured the East Coast as a member of the Steely Pan Steel Band and was also the winner of the NC Day of Percussion Competition 2015. 

I currently live in Hickory, NC  where I work after school as a freelance musician, percussion consultant, and as a private percussion instructor. On my days off I enjoy playing jazz drumset, backpacking to far off lands, and attempting to cook various delicious meals. 

I hope you're as excited as I am about Band and I can't wait to make music together!
