About this pro

ZCK MUSIC ACADEMY is affiliated with the Royal Conservatory Music Development Program which provides a recognized national standard of success in music study from beginner to advanced levels. It inspires excellence through individual student assessments that are central to the program, while also supporting teachers with high-quality and innovative resources.

ZCK MUSIC PRODUCTION is always looking to discover new songwriters and new songs, including songwriters who write lyrics only. Recording artists and record companies don’t accept lyrics without music, but we do. A wide variety of accomplished musicians work with us to write music to complement their work.That means you don’t have to know how to read or write music to work with ZCK Music Production. Our professional team makes lyric writers’ words come alive with the sounds of hit songs like those you hear on the radio. And we turn rough recordings from songwriters who write both words and music into great song demos, ready to present to any recording artist, record producer, record label or music publisher in the world.

I love what I do and I could say it is a big passion of my life to teach and share all my knowledge and experiance . My teaching is an invitation to keep you connected with yourself in order to explore the deep impacts of sounds and deep vocal expression on your inner balance . When one practises conscious sounds and breathing , it realigns and re tunes the physical body as a musical instrument helping to free the voice often caught up in the mind to express what is naturally is his or her inner psychic reality. First I take my time to observe the student abilities. Each person is different and I am trying to give them my best of knowledge and experience to develop their passion and abilities.

    ZCK strived to bring the best out of their students by patiently cultivating the hidden skills inside them. My son enjoyed the working relationship that he has developed with them over the years!

    My piano and voice teacher Christie is very thorough when she teaches, and she has helped me to improve as a musician. Now instead of just playing the notes, I can play with musicality and expression. It is thanks to Christie that I was selected to perform at Carnegie Hall. ZCKMusic’s concerts are also fun and well thought-out with student-made presentations. Overall, my experience with ZCKMusic has been excellent.

  • Marline Ogunjobi

    I like the instructors, Christie and Zdenek. They are so caring and dedicated to their students, and are very competent music instructors. They provide personal, hands on training unique to my son's abilities. They also provide opportunities for the students to come together and perform in summer and Christmas concerts while giving back to the community. My son's music skills have improved tremendously since joining this studio. I'm very glad we found ZCKMusic Academy and would highly recommend the services there.

FAQs


What is your typical process for working with a new student?

My teaching is an invitation to keep you connected with yourself in order to explore the deep impacts of sounds and deep vocal expression on your inner balance . When one practices conscious sounds and breathing , it realigns and retunes the physical body as a musical instrument helping to free the voice often caught up in the mind to express what is naturally is his or her inner psychic reality. First I take my time to observe the student abilities. Each person is different and I am trying to give them my best of knowledge and experience to develop their passion and abilities.


What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Vocal pedagogy and teaching piano is one of my favorite subjects to teach. I experiment using a variety of well-known and practiced methods as well as creating my own methods and exercises finely honed over 25 years of my teaching experience. I cover a rich array of topics and customize instruction to help each voice, each unique instrument and artist, develop their unique vocal instrument to maximize their expressive voice quality.

I graduated from Berklee College of Music as well I did my studies in Europe at the the Contemporary College and I did 10 year study on my piano skills. I have a degree from the Art College.

How did you get started teaching?

Teaching music it was my calling. I prepared my first student to attend to Conservatory when I was just 16th years old. I love to share my knowledge and to see the result of my hard work. The process is very exciting and creative. From my youth I could feel that I have a power to lead a choir and I was teaching as well many Master Classes. Teaching for me it's like a performing I have to put all my best and inspire people to get  to the point that their will open their hearts and mind to express themselves  


What types of students have you worked with?

I worked with any age. My youngest student was 3 years old and the oldest was older than me. I had a lady, taking voice lesson and she was 76 years old. I prefer to work with any person who has a passion for music. 


Describe a recent event you are fond of.

I am a founder of ZCK Music Academy & Recording Studios. Lately we put together a wonderful Education Series Concert dedicated to Beethoven's music and life. It was amazing to hear from the parents  that they didn't come just to see performance of their students but they learn a lot about this great composer. 


What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

In order to work with the instructor like me you have to be ready for commitment . I am very serious about what I am doing and if someone decides to study with me , they should respect me as a teacher and human being and come for the lesson on time and ready.I always treat my students with the same respect.


What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

 If they can dedicate time to work on their new skills 

If they really love to learn music and make a commitment for their lessons.
