Tim KudlockDelta Chapter Alumnus
Tim Kudlock has been active in Mu Beta Psi since pledging the fraternity at Clemson University in the Fall of 1985. While in college and in the years since, Tim has remained very active in the fraternity, holding the offices of Chapter Vice President, National President, National Editor of The Clef, permanent Board member (serving as both Chairman and Vice Chairman of the Board), Interim National Treasurer, and Chief Financial Officer.
Tim's journey into music began at the early age of six, when he started studying piano. Through the years, he tacked on the accordion, trumpet, organ and voice. While at Clemson, Tim not only sang in the choral ensembles but also spent several years as the piano accompanist for the University Chorus and C.U. After Six Singers show choir. He even did a few stints on the piano playing for receptions and dinners, the most memorable of which was being asked to play at the President's Mansion for a high profile reception.
Tim graduated from Clemson University with a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting in 1988 and a Master of Professional Accountancy degree in 1989. He became a CPA in 1992. Having lived in Columbia, SC since 1989, Tim became involved in musical endeavors first at his church, where he became a member of the Chancel Choir and later joined the church orchestra as 1st chair trumpet. He has also played keyboard in two Christian bands which he recalls as both rewarding and challenging, both musically and spiritually.
In 2000, Tim took a quantum leap into community theater and, over the past four years, has sung and danced his way through 42nd Street, Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, South Pacific, The Best Christmas Pageant Ever (where he was also the pianist), Brigadoon, Singin' in the Rain and the Rock Nativity, where he played the whimsical King Herod. He also sings baritone with The Jacobsons, a male quartet. In his "spare" time, he has studied tap dance at the Columbia Ballet School.
Promoting music wasn't something that just ended as Tim graduated from college...in fact, Tim sees his current activities as only the beginning of a hopefully long life in music!
