Hello my name is Zachary Cummings! I was born and raised in Sanford, NC where I graduated from Lee County High School. Afterwards, I graduated from East Carolina University where I earned my Bachelors Degree in Music Education. At ECU I received the Teaching Fellows Scholarship and was awarded the Keyboard Department Distinguished Student.

I have taught previously at Jacksonville High School in Onslow County for ten years. While there I was in charge of all performing ensembles (jazz band, concert band, wind ensemble, and marching band) and taught musicology classes (Music Appreciation & AP Music Theory), named Department Chair, Teacher of the Year in 2019, co-director for the Pit Orchestra, and advisors for the Cardinal Ambassadors, Tri-M, GSA and CAPAA.

Currently I am teaching at Swansboro Middle School where I am in charge of all band classes and I am also an advisor for the Tri-M Chapter.

In addition to my in-school responsibilities, I also participate in the Coastal Carolina Community Orchestra- playing clarinet and percussion.
