Mr. Kimbrough is the band director at Enka Middle School. He graduated with a bachelor's degree in music education from Western Carolina University and has always had a love for music. His passion and desire to teach started when he was in seventh grade band where he was inspired by his teacher at Dodgen Middle School in Marietta, GA. As a student at Western Carolina University he was an active leader in the concert band, jazz band, marching band, and chamber ensembles. After graduating from WCU, he taught for three years in Haywood County. There the jazz program and solo/ensemble groups received high ratings in their festival performances and the band program grew steadily over time.
The Enka Middle/Intermediate School bands consist of roughly 200 students and we would LOVE for you to be a part of it if you are not already! Performance groups aside from regular band class include jazz band, woodwind ensemble, percussion ensemble, and pep band. These groups better enhance and reinforce what we learn in regular class, allowing students to excel. This has resulted in students regularly representing the school at All-County, All-District, and All-State Band clinics and performances as well as region and state jazz events.
Mr. Kimbrough lives in Candler with his wife Madeline. He is a member of NCMEA, NAfME, and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia. He enjoys spending time with his wife, running, biking, camping, playing trombone/bass, and making bow ties.
