Mr. Kirk Finley

I am the Assitant Band Director and Director of Percussion for Arab City Schools. I have been teaching at Arab since 2015. I am a graduate of Harding University in Searcy, Arkansas. I have a degree in Percussion Performance and Business. While at Harding I was selected to serve as the percussion section leader for two years. 

In my time at Arab, we have had many amazing opportunities and accomplishments. We were selected and performed at the 2018 Percussive Arts Society International Convention (PASIC). In 2019 our Percussion Ensemble performed at the PAS Alabama Day of Percussion. The marching percussion section has many superior ratings at marching festivals.  

I am an active member of  The Alabama Winds and The Cullman Community Band. I am blessed to be able to play and teach percussion all over the country! In my spare time, I enjoy playing golf and pickleball. Also, I enjoy spending time with my friends and family. I am also a huge Alabama fan! Roll Tide!
