Mr. Zach Shirley

I am in my 11th year of teaching and my 9th year as a band director at Shepton High School. I am also the Music Team Lead for the Shepton High School Music Department. I am currently the interim head band director and oversee all ensembles including the Wind Ensemble, Symhonic Band, Concert Band, Jazz Band, assist with the full orchestra, and the Shepton Sound of the Pack Marching Band. Following high school at Plano West, I attended the University of North Texas and graduated in 2012 with a B.M. in Music Education with a focus on secondary instrumental education. I am a member of TMEA, TBA, and Phi Mu Alpha Sinfonia, a national music fraternity. I enjoy running, working out, playing Pokemon Go!, spending time with friends and my cats, and I play flute and piccolo with the Plano Community Band.
