Zaky N.

Independence, KY

About Zaky

Hi, my name is Zak! Music is a beautiful thing. It has the so much power. It can be used to send a message, move and inspire people. Music can impact emotions, it is a beautiful and powerful thing!

Music, and teaching have always been a big passion in my life. The ability to take knowledge of a subject that you have, and show, share, and shape someone and pass on that knowledge to them. It is an amazing feeling. I am a passionate, and caring instructor. My teaching style is encouraging, motivating, and educational. I fully believe that you can do anything you set your mind to, and I use th
at by showing my students that I believe in them.

I use a curriculum that was taught to me, and has been used in schools and universities. This curriculum fits all age groups and skill levels. Starting with Rock, moving to Funk, ending with Jazz. When drumming playing with music, learning improvisation, and playing by ear is important. I also focus on this, having students learn their favorite songs, and learn to play with new music as well. This keeps students interested, and adds a fun personal element to their lessons. I also have implemented use of a teaching app, so while practicing if students have a question they can ask me right then so to not forget, and I can give feedback. It also has a practice tracker tool. If you have any questions feel free to email me.

I look forward to meeting you, and helping you reach your music goals!

My son is 10 years old and has zero experience with music but wanted to give drumming a try. Zaky was perfect- encouraging, fun, and friendly. Zaky is a clear teacher who stealthily sneaks in terms and concepts while the kids are hands on. I'd absolutely recommend him for any age student!

About Chelsea

Hello! My name is Chelsea Melamed and I am a professional opera singer and voice instructor. I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from the Lawrence University Conservatory and a Master's Degree in Music from the San Francisco Conservatory of Music. I am currently pursuing my Doctorate at CCM (University of Cincinnati College-Conservatory of Music) with an emphasis in voice and pedagogy so that I may earn top mastery in teaching and performing.

I love helping students in all genres discover their voice and open their sound. I believe the basis of good singing technique translates across all
musical platforms. I also think having a comfortable and fun environment are key factors for vocal growth.

In addition, enjoy teaching beginning piano students. Please contact me at any time. I look forward to helping you along your journey!
