Bonjour everyone , my name is Zach, I was born and raised in France in a small (tiny tiny) village called Galluis.
I have since then lived in Paris , Philadelphia and now New York.
He graduated from "Jean-Monnet European High-school" where I specialized in English and French Literature.
I have been teaching FRENCH and DRUMS for more than 12 years now.
About FRENCH LESSONS : ( section about DRUM LESSONS below )
Most people I've taught come to me saying "French is so hard , I will never be able to speak it" or "When I try to speak french, french people answer me in english"
--- THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN WITH ME :)
French is easy , you just need a good teacher who cares about you.
I can help you with :
• Pronunciation ( so that nobody will answer you in English )
• What to know if you go to France soon ( so that you can know a little bit before you go )
• Basic to advanced conversation ( so you can make french friends and understand what they say )
• Train your ear
• Grammar / Vocabulary / Verbs
BUT DON'T WORRY , IT WILL BE FUN !
After the first lesson , ALL my students realize that learning french isn't scary anymore.
So : qui veut apprendre le français ?*
(*who wants to learn french?)
Section about DRUM LESSONS:
On the music side of my studies: I attended the American School of Modern Music of Paris for 3 years and moved to Philadelphia to study with Joe Morello's former student Sam Ruttenberg at the University of the Arts in 2012.
I perform as a professional jazz drummer between Europe and America.
IF YOU CAN SAY IT , YOU CAN PLAY IT !
•I teach beginners to advanced students , all ages and styles are welcome
I can teach you ( how to ) :
• play with other musicians
• the history of the drums
• your role as a drummer
• make music with an instrument that at first doesn't seem very musical
• latin / afro cuban grooves
• correct your grip on the sticks
and everything else you may ask... the possibilities and endless
Excellent teacher! Zach is wonderful. He is very knowledgable, patient and intelligent. I just moved from China to America, so my English is not so good. However, Zach is so kind and patient to encourage me to study French. I really enjoyed my first French lesson with Zach! And I am looking forward to continuing my lessons.+ Read More
