Hello! I'm a full-time private music teacher, and anyone who knows me knows that teaching music is my passion in life! Although I work with students of any age, I'm sort of a specialist in giving young beginners (ages 4+) a fun, easy, happy and successful start on violin, viola, cello, guitar and piano! This year I launched a set of virtual music courses for the Hamilton and Niles school districts here in West Michigan, and I like to use these courses with my private students to supplement their learning and practice between lessons. Please reach out with any questions you might have and I’ll get back to you right away! Thank you! ♬
I am the chief curriculum designer for Violin, Guitar, Piano, and Ukulele.
I teach private piano, violin, cello, and guitar lessons and group guitar classes.
I've taught 30,000+ music lessons on violin, viola, cello, guitar, ukulele, and piano! I specialize in giving a great start to beginners!
I taught private lessons and small ensembles for violin, viola, cello, and piano.
I taught violin, viola, cello, guitar, and piano, and co-designed curriculum for Spanish, Chinese, Drawing and Painting, Fencing, Ballet, Martial Arts, Piano, Violin, and Guitar.
Zoe felt comfortable and enjoyed the lesson. Zach was able to help us figure out how to get the instrument back in tune after moving to a new climate. The online format worked great.
Zach is encouraging and makes lessons fun!
Emma is delighted with her first lesson. I needed to insist on putting her violin down to sit down and finish her school work. She is home schooled. Love the way he teaches. Very clear lessons.
Robert really enjoyed his lesson! He was pleased with his progress last week!
My son enjoyed the lesson!
My 11 year old son had his first violin lesson with Zach and LOVED IT! Looking forward to his lesson next week! :)
Great first lesson.
Great first lesson! Looking forward to many more!
Great first lesson! Looking forward to the next one!
Zach is able to keep my active son engaged during the lesson. My son has already learned a ton and is eager to learn more!
Zach has been awesome! He's knowledgable, is patient with my young daughter, and she has improved immensely in just 5 lessons!
Very energetic, fun and helped me improve!
My 6 yo is taking violin classes with Zach online. The classes are high energy, very engaging, informative, and fun.
I really appreciated that Zach was very understanding and flexible with crazy changing work schedules. He does a good job of mixing music theory, technical exercises, while still being open and even encouraging the student to working on styles and pieces they are interested in and enjoy. Zach is great about asking the student what they want to learn and work on, while still making sure that they are always learning something new and always pushing themselves. Zach always seems to genuinely care and get excited about music, teaching, and his students.+ Read More
Zach is very personable and figured out a great method to motivate my reluctant child--fake money!! He also developed his own musical notation to aid in helping students learn how to read music but in such a way that isn't as complicated as the standard notation. My son really likes him.+ Read More
My daughter is very shy and quiet. Zach is fantastic and she loves him! He is patient and funny. His way of teaching works! She is just 6 years old and is already playing songs after just 6 weeks. His music curriculum is so easy to understand and play! We've been very impressed.+ Read More
