I am an experienced music instructor who has been teaching for years, both privately, and working at multiple private studios. I grew up playing electric guitar, ranging from metal, to classic rock, to neo-classical. I am currently a performance major for guitar studying at Arizona State University under incredible instruction from amazing instructors. As a former music education major, I emphasize the importance of a versatile approach to teaching that suits each individually and promotes a greater opportunity for learning. I teach my students to understand and conceptualize music, rather than being able to repeat notes. Lessons will include theory, improvisation, focus on healthy practice and mental habits. I personally strive for all of my students to reach a potential that allows for them to be versatile and proactive musicians that can be comfortable in a variety of musical scenarios. I teach all ages, ranging from young children to seniors. All levels of experience, from beginner to advanced!

About Zachariah K.

Zachariah Kinnard is a Arizona native guitarist, and is currently residing in Glendale. He first began playing guitar as a teenager, inspired by the various heavy metal bands he grew up listening to. While playing in various bands, and performing solo, Zachariah was introduced to flamenco guitar as well as classical style guitar. Upon moving to Glendale, he quickly found his way to begin his journey into formal musical training through Glendale Community College in the Spring of 2017. In Spring 2017, Zachariah began studying classical guitar intensively with his instructor, Chuck Hullihan. Within a short time, he quickly found success as a small chamber musician and as a solo performer. In the Spring of 2019, he was awarded 1st place in the Maricopa Community College’s Artist of Promise Competition for solo guitar, as well as working with his peers to place 2nd in the Small Ensembles category. Currently, Zachariah is pursuing his bachelor's degree in performance for guitar at Arizona State University under the instruction of Jiyeon (Jiji) Kim.

While performing has always been a priority in his musical career, education has also been an immense focus in his studies. As soon as he began his study of the guitar, he quickly focused on refining his skills as an educator to teach his peers and students. What started as a hobby became a profession as he became employed by multiple private studios around the greater Phoenix area through recommendations of students and instructors. As a performer, Zachariah is constantly striving to find multiple ways to approach difficulties in his learning in order to better facilitate more versatile teaching skills with his own students. In his educational career, Zachariah expects he will continue performing and teaching continuously while working diligently to promote a supportive musical community in his home state.
