I love this director. I had him for marching band he's not only taught me more about music, but he's taught us life lessons. Awesome quote from K: It takes the same amount of time to be good at someth
Best band director I've ever had. He made the mclean band into what it is today- which is one of the best bands around. His remarks keep the class entertaining, and he expects a lot from his students.
Kirchenbauer is just passionate about music, wants to have a good band, very prideful, little to no leniency w/ few exceptions, can be hilarious, trips will have fun, great guy out of class
Mr K is a preaty bad example of a teacher. Mr Sanger did a much better job
If Mr. K has ever experienced any joy in teaching music, he certainly doesn't show any sign of it. I can count the number of times I have seen him smile on my fingers. In 3 years of his class.
He is very charismatic that students never treat him rudely he is also supportive
An unconventional teacher who really cares about his students. McLean has had a great banc program for many many years because he's an incredibly hard worker--and expects the same
K is tough, but he needs to be to get the job done. When you take him out of the stressful school lie, like on trips, he totally kicks donkey!
Ridiculous hothead. Should not be a teacher. Intimidates students.
he's a great person and very understanding if you don't act like a fool and give your best shot...
the only reason i quit band is because of him, he only cares about the super band nerds who follow his every word
The SCUM of any teacher. Wheres my passport from 1.5 years ago? Why dont you ask him. He thinks only about himself and doesnt care how horribly he treats people
hes tough, but you get results. his class is a fresh taste of reality.
K rocks! he's a great guy to get to know for four years and becomes a not only a great teacher, but a great friend and mentor
people that don't like jim kirchenbauer should have their heads kicked in. i am what i am today becuase of him!
He is very hard working, and can be misconstred as being mean, but outside of working, once you get to know him, he is a cool guy.
K kicks mucho butt, he's direct and to the point, but he's awesome
