Hello and welcome! My name is Zack Melton, and I am honored to be a part of the New Hope community as the Band Director at Owen Cross Roads Elementary, New Hope Middle, and New Hope High School. Some of my career objectives and passions are to teach young student musicians skills, tools, and processes that will increase their musical ability and knowledge, to foster and cultivate healthy relationships, and allow for valuable and life-enhancing experiences within the public school band program. I have energy, enthusiasm, and excitement for my life and career! I have taught music in the field since May 2013 part-time with several different band programs in north Alabama and have learned a lot from both my colleagues and their students. This will be my first year as the band director and I could not be more excited to get started! I look forward to when our paths will cross and want to thank you for your interest in becoming a part of the band program here at New Hope!
