Hello, Panthers! My name is Benjamin Reyes and I am the band director at Hunters Creek Middle School!
I became a Panther beginning in the 2020-2021 school year and I'm excited to be teaching 6th, 7th, and 8th grade band as well as 8th grade General Music.
Onslow County has been my home for most of my life-- I graduated from Richlands High School in 2012 before attending East Carolina University in Greenville, NC. I received my Bachelor of Music in Music Education in 2016 and completed my Master of Music in Instrumental Conducting in 2020.
Formerly, I was the band director at Northside High School in Jacksonville, NC and have interned at both Hunters Creek Middle School and White Oak High School. I am a trumpet player by trade, but have studied and taught all instruments to include piano and chorus.
While I love teaching and music, I also enjoy playing video games, watching anime/TV shows, and cooking!
