I have 24 years experience on guitar, 19 years voice experience, 10 years piano experience, and over 20 years of experience in music theory. I am currently studying through Berklee College of Music's online degree program for my bachelor's degree in guitar, working with the best teachers in the world, to become the most knowledgeable, well rounded teacher I can be.
Zack is an engaging teacher who customizes the curriculum around student's interests or style of music. Our daughter had taken piano lessons for 6 years and no longer enjoyed playing piano. She was considering stopping piano altogether and focus on some other instrument. Then she started taking lessons with Zack and now piano is her favorite instrument. She went from being a child that needed to be forced to practice to practicing out of her own desire and enjoyment. She is always looking forward to the lessons.
He is extremely knowledgeable and knows how to get his students to live up to his high expectations. He teaches a wide variety of music styles.
I try to find out what a new student is passionate about. I feel that there are fundamental lessons to be learned throughout ones musical studies, but that those can be geared towards the student's already existing interests.
Almost 25 years experience in all, focusing on guitar, piano, voice, as well as other stringed instruments.
My hourly rate is negotiable, based on travel, and students/parents budget. I try to be flexible.
I began teaching in 2003, and loved transferring my knowledge to others, and watching them grow as artists.
I have worked with a 4 year old piano student, and a 65 year old blind bass student, and everything in between. I currently have a blind student on my roster for vocals, piano, and songwriting that is excelling wonderfully.
