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

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.

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!

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.
