Mr. David B. Edmonds
My name is David Brian Edmonds. I am a 1995 graduate of Mars Hill College in Western North Carolina where I received my Bachelor's Degree in Music Education. My teaching career started in Asheville, N.C. where I was an assistant Band Director at Asheville High School. After my first year teaching, I took the Band Director position at Hunters Creek Middle in Jacksonville, N.C. where I have remained the Band Director since 1996. I am fully committed to providing a high quality music education that will challenge and motivate my students to realize their full potential. I maintain the highest standards for my students and empower them to become creative and independent thinkers by providing an engaging and structured instructional presentation. The Band program at Hunters Creek Middle is very popular with approximately two-hundred and fifty students participating in grades six through eight. During my tenure at Hunters Creek Middle the students have consistently received excellent and superior ratings at the Eastern District State Concert Band MPA Festivals. Many of my students have been selected to participate in the All State Honors Band, Eastern - All District Band Clinics, and the All County Honors Band Clinics. My students are often asked to perform at various school and community related functions that showcase their talents.
I am honored to have the great privilege of serving as a teacher, mentor, and conductor of the many excellent ensembles at Hunters Creek Middle School.
