Mr. Zachary Cummings
I am a graduate from East Carolina University with a Bachelor of Music. I trained under Dr. Keiko Sekino while studying piano at ECU. Under the tutelage of Dr. Wagoner and Dr. Juchniewicz I received accreditation in the area of music education.
I have been heavily involved in the musical arts throughout my life. In middle school I started on clarinet in the concert and jazz bands. As I continued in high school I joined the marching band, learned to play the string bass, participated in the spring musical, and accompanied the school choir at concerts on piano. All through my time in middle and high school I took piano lessons from multiple teachers.
At ECU I continued my studies in music by participating in multiple ensembles, played in the Marching Pirates, took piano chamber classes, accompanied instrumentalists, played the euphonium in the concert band, and participated in the symphonic band and wind ensemble.
As a teacher I have lead mutliple ensembles including jazz, concert, symphonic, and marching band. I also teach the basic musicology class (Music Appreciation) here at JHS. I am currently a member of the Onslow Winds Jazz Band, the Coastal Carolina Community Orchestra, and play the piano for Meme Simmons "Debbie's Angels Productions", a lovely local theater company.
