About the Director
David B. Edmonds
Director of Bands
Welcome to the Broad Creek Middle School Band Website! I am especially happy to welcome our new beginning band members and all the outstanding musicians that make up our 7th and 8th grade performing ensembles. My name is David B. Edmonds and I am absolutely thrilled to embark on this 27th year of teaching instrumental music education in the state of North Carolina. I received the Bachelor of Music Education degree from Mars Hill University in 1995. Following graduation, I started my teaching career in Western North Carolina serving as the Assistant Band Director at Asheville High School. During my time at Asheville High, I had the privilege of working in one of the most successful Band programs in the state. Beginning in 1996 I served as Director of Bands at Hunters Creek Middle School in Jacksonville, North Carolina. I have worked as a Clinical Teacher for student interns, Mentor, Department Chair, and Beginning Teacher Coordinator. Under my leadership, Bands have received superior and excellent ratings at the Eastern District MPA Concert Band Festivals. Students have been selected to participate in the All-State Honors Concert and Jazz Bands, Eastern - All District Concert and Jazz Bands, and All-County Honors Band Clinics. I have served as a clinician for the Onslow County Honors Band and the Eastern All-District Band Clinics.
In 1996, my wife Lisa Edmonds and I moved to Carteret County where we have enjoyed raising our children in this unique coastal community. We love this community and share the tremendous value that Carteret County Public Schools maintains for the power of Music Education to transform the lives of creative students. It is absolutely my pleasure to work with all the wonderful students and staff at Broad Creek Middle. I look forward to an outstanding year of helping our students fully realize and develop their awesome talent. I challenge each of you to elevate your efforts this year to the highest level and continue to unleash greatness at BCMS. Thank you in advance for what I am sure will be a fantastic year!
