I need a phonetic spelling.

The composers name would be pronounced \ˈhī-dən\. English pronunciation would sound like "Hi-Den". Hi as in hello and den as in living room.

Joseph Hayden's name is pronounced differently by people who live in German and English speaking countries. In German, people pronounce it as [ˈjoːzɛf ˈhaɪdn̩], while in English, people pronounce it as /ˈdʒoʊzəf ˈhaɪdən/.

The phonetic pronunciation is "Hay", like "Hey! " in "Hey, you! " followed by "Den", like the den of a bear. It rhymes with "hey, then". His full legal name was Joseph Haydn, though sometimes noted as Franz Joseph Haydn. He was considered the Father of the Symphony or the Stringed Quartet.
