Biography

James "Jim" Meredith (b. 1952, Ft. Knox, Ky.) is an American composer.

Mr. Knox graduated from the Shenandoah Conservatory of Music in 1974 with a major in euphonium and immediately began his teaching career in Lynchburg, Virginia. Most of his 40 years of teaching were spent at Sandusky Middle School where the band program achieved state, national, and international recognition, performing at the Midwest Clinic in Chicago, and at the Virginia Music Educator's Conference multiple times. Mr. Meredith was recognized as the 2010 VMEA Music Educator of the Year and in 2012 was awarded the Director Legion Laureate award presented annually to eight band directors nationwide by the John Philip Sousa Foundation and BANDWORLD magazine. He retired in December 2013.

Over the years Jim has done many successful arrangements and original compositions for his own bands as well as commissions for other bands and orchestras. Just recently he has committed to rearranging them for publication. He enjoys a busy schedule of guest conducting, adjudicating, and guest speaking at universities to music education majors.
