“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 with his father starting his ear-training as a toddler. He’s taught all levels of guitar, piano and voice for several years. He graduated with a Bachelors in Music and Mathematics from Cal State: Long Beach and the Bob Cole Conservatory of Music. He’s performed in various groups for nearly two decades, headlining in venues across the US such as The House of Blues, Hard Rock Hotel and others. He’s written and recorded songs that have received hundreds of thousands of streams, were used in major network commercials and placed on national top 100 radio charts.
*** Lesson Details ***
Every student is unique, so I create a unique lesson plan to fit the interests and ability of each my students. My main focus while teaching is creating a safe and fun environment for my students. While learning a musical instrument or skill requires a fair amount of technical knowledge and discipline, it should also be fun and engaging. You won’t practice if you don’t like what you’re doing! I like to give students tools that allow them to be creative and play around. This gives them an opportunity to naturally develop their own unique musical voice which technical study and practice will only enrich and expand.
*** Travel Equipment ***
I bring my own instrument and amplification if needed as well as teaching materials like books, staff or tab paper, and pencils. I expect students to provide their own instruments.
*** Specialties ***
I specialize in rock and pop music, in the broadest possible definitions of the genres.
I have worked freelance in a variety of music related fields for the past several years, including teaching,
performing, and audio engineering. I have written, recorded and performed music for a national tv commercial
and won an international songwriting competition. I have lead and managed several bands and artistic projects.
Since 2017, most of my work has come from singing, producing and songwriting through the online marketplace,
SoundBetter.com, where I have earned a ranking among the site’s top songwriters.
