About the Band Director

  • Mr. Quincy Lundy

    Mr. Lundy is in his 22nd year of teaching band and is in his 12th year as director of bands at Walkertown Middle and High Schools where he began the Walkertown High School Band program in 2011.

Mr. Lundy is a member of NCMEA and served on the executive board as Member-at-Large. Mr. Lundy was recently nominated and inducted into the prestigious American Schools Band Directors Association.

    Prior to teaching band in public school, Mr. Lundy performed as a clarinetist in the United States Marine Corps Bands at Camp Lejeune and Parris Island.

The highlight of Mr. Lundy's military career was the powerfully moving premier performance of his original concert band work, A Symphonic Tribute, written in memoriam of his middle school band director, Mr. Russell French, who introduced Lundy to the world of instrumental music and deeply inspired him toward musical excellence. The piece was first performed in Cedar Falls, Iowa in 2000 by the Paris Island Marine Band and later performed and presented to Mr. French's wife and son, Susan and Brian French, in Winston-Salem by the Cherry Point Marine Band in 2003 as a part of the Old Salem Visitors Center opening and dedication.
