James Kendrick

I am the Fine Arts Department Chairperson, Director of Choral Activities and IB Music teacher at Columbia High School.

I love my home, my family and my church where I serve as minister of music. I am a Columbia Eagle through and through, having taught each year at CHS since its opening in 2005. I am a hopeless optimist: I believe that every child has a voice and that music is the best way to share it. Music, in the right hands, can save the world!

My Professional memberships include: the Huntsville City Schools Choral Director's Association (HCSCDA), the Alabama Vocal Association (AVA), and the National Association for Music Educators (NAfME). I am a member of the Huntsville Choral Director's Association where I serve as treasurer and webmaster. I have been a member of Huntsville Little Theatre and Fantasy Playhouse: I have played various roles in Huntsville's annual production of "A Christmas Carol". My "claim to fame" is auditioning for the Metropolitan Opera Company, but I consider bluegrass my "soul music".
