Director of Bands
My name is Jeremy Kitchens, and I am honored to be the new Director of Bands for Alvin High School. I am excited for the opportunity to continue teaching in a community where I already have many great relationships with so many of you!
For those that don’t know me, I have been a band director at Fairview Junior High for eight years, with the last five of those as the head director. I feel blessed to be able to continue with those of you from Fairview, and equally so to be able to work with the multitudes of students/parents that come from Alvin Junior High, Harby Junior High, and beyond!
I grew up in southeast Texas, where I began my band journey all the way back in junior high as a tuba player. When I got to high school, and adjusted to the crushing weight of the sousaphone, I quickly grew to love marching band. Once I decided to pursue a music degree in college, I knew that I wanted to eventually become a director of a high school band. Once I graduated college, I moved to this area for my first job at Fairview in 2015. I currently live in the area with my amazing wife, Courtney, and our dog, Vanna.
I could not be more excited to have the privilege of working with you all this school year! If you have any questions, or have anything you would like for me to know, do not hesitate to contact me.
