Ableton is such a powerful tool but can be a bit intimidating when you first start with it. There's an endless amount of possibilities and it can be difficult to know where to even start. I've written and produced hundreds of songs for myself, TV commercials, other artists and songs I've worked on have accumulated millions of plays online. Allow me to share my knowledge with you, both technical and creative. Let's make some great music!

About Zach

“I have a passion for music and my greatest goal in life is to share that passion one way or another.” Zach P. started his musical journey before he could speak with his father starting his ear-training as a toddler. He’s taught all levels of guitar, piano and voice for several years. H

Zach is awesome! My 15yo daughter has been loving her lessons and is excited to show us what she has learned after every lesson. She picked up the guitar herself about six months ago and after learning some basics from YouTube she asked if she could have lessons to get to the next level. She will definitely be continuing her weekly lessons with Zach for as long as she wants. We love hearing her practice every day and are excited that she is learning to play the music she listens to and has a passion for.

Zac was a great instructor.
Renay F.
Zach is a great teacher! He has been teaching my son (HS Junior) piano since November and from the start, Zach has been very easy to work with, a good balance of encouragement while challenging Noah to improve his skill level. Definitely recommend :)

I teach rapping to beginners, intermediate, advanced, and touring professionals.
During your first lesson I do a computer analysis of your voice, I find out what your goals are in singing, what your favorite kinds of music are, and I take you in the direction you want to go and show you how to get there in the shortest possible time.

I always record my students so that they know how they sound to others. I also make a CD of them singing to background music if they wish, included in the cost of the lessons for no extra charge.

Learn to sing beautifully, and most important, emotionally.
Learn the parts of your vocal instrument, How each works, How they work together. Develop Breath support (80% of singing).
Learn how to do the Singer's Formant, "Squillo" (that "ringing" sound of professionals).

Learn how to conquer nervousness, learn Resonance, Overtones, Vibrato, How to sing high notes, Learn the "singing vowels", and more.

I would rather teach singing than eat ...

Classical piano is a subject I have taught for over twenty (20) years. As a classically-trained pianist, it has been my main area of focus throughout my teaching and performing careers. If you wish to focus on classical piano, we will cover in-depth music theory during our classes, which is a required component for success in classical piano.

*Please Note*
Online-only piano classes are only available to students who have prior experience. I do not recommend complete beginners to start fully online, as there are beginners' nuances that are much better addressed in-person!

Edwin is a fantastic teacher and so patient. I am amazed at how much my son has learned in just a couple lessons.
David S.
Had an excellent initial discussion with my instructor, Edwin, today. It was big picture but at the same time Edwin’s comments & suggestions gave me confidence in his command of the art (engineering, arrangement, composition & structure, and playing techniques), all the things I’m going to need help with to take my musical projects to another level.

Edwin is chill, flexible, and conveys a ton of relevant practice tips every lesson.

"I am compelled to write a raving review about Haley Shea. I am 55 years old and started working with her one-year ago to nail down punctuation and grammar in order to write a blog about nutrition and resistance exercise. Haley is patient and has a pleasant demeanor that strongly motivated me to want to learn the material. Currently, I look forward to each and every lesson.

Around December of last year, I discovered that my heart was not into blog writing. I sent Haley an email and explained my feelings and that I was actually passionate about screenwriting. She wrote back and I discovered this was right (or write) up her alley. Truth be told, as a nine year-old I used to write and direct 8 mm movies with my neighborhood friends as actors and dreamed one day of becoming a writer, producer and director. But like all other dreams this one was derailed.

Haley had me write a couple scene samples. She sent them back to me and was quite pleased with my neophyte attempt. I told her about a sci-fi television project that I wast interested in and after many months of her encouragement and my persistence I finished the first draft.

After some revisions, I watched her perform a table read by Skype utilizing the skills of her improvisation students. I loved watching their reaction as they each read their part. It is very gratifying watching some one become the character you created. It was intended to be funny and campy. There were times the actors seemed to have trouble containing their laughter. Overall their reaction was positive.

At this juncture, Haley is helping me with query letters and obtaining input from other professionals in her inner circle. She is also seeking input from other writers.

The most important thing is I enjoy screenwriting no matter what happens. Haley has helped me love what I'm doing and it is not chore but sweet ride.

I'm greatful for her guidance,
Paul Skinner"

"Best. Instructor. Ever. Indeed. LOL Kenneth's a truly awesome teacher that eats, sleep, and breathes dance, and just freaking life in general. This guy can be waiting to be seated at a restaurant and start dancing out in public because he's just that passionate and excited to teach LOL I was able to learn from Kenneth in a summer workshop and the amount of craziness that happened blew my mind. It's not just his choreography that's awesome , but it's Kenneth himself - his personality makes him stand out from the crowd, and his vibrancy as a human being, dancer, and teacher, radiates in any environment he's in, and it's infectious. Kenneth inspires me to not only learn his choreography extremely well, but to also find myself and my own style by encouraging me to find my own personality in his dances. Thanks bro ✊🏽 Can't wait to learn from you again in the future!"
