Mrs. Amanda Durden

Hi, my name is Mrs. Durden, and this will be my ninth year teaching, but my second year at Gloverville Elementary & Warrenville Elementary.  I attended the University of South Carolina-Aiken, and participated in all the instrumental ensembles.  Jazz Band and Jazz Combo were my favorites! My primary instrument is the saxophone, but I can also play ukulele, piano, and bassoon.  I am also a product of Aiken County Public Schools. I attended Clearwater Elementary, LBC Middle, and Midland Valley High. When I'm not making music with my favorite musicians, I enjoy spending time with my family and husband, cooking, and running.  

The best way to contact me is via email! Check out the resources tab on the left, and see what we use in music!
