Lesson Details


Levels Taught:
Beginner, Intermediate, Advanced
I am a professional banjo guitar player with the band Nu-Blu and a graduate of East Tennessee State University’s Bluegrass Program. My success has depended on my ability to create, organize, and execute unique teaching methods based on student’s specific goals and skill level. If a student is serious about learning an instrument, theory, or anything within my realm of knowledge, I can guarantee results. I spend majority of my free time studying, researching, and thinking of different ways to succeed in the instruments and subjects I offer.

Teaching since:

My name is Zachariah (Zach) McCracken from Bristol, TN. I am a professional banjo/guitar player with the band Nu Blu and a graduate of ETSU’’s Bluegrass Program. I have worked with many professional artists and taught over 200 students so far. Regardless of genre, my guitar instruction techniques vary depending on individual students and their overall outlook of music. As an instructor, I must adapt and teach according to these different musical understandings. Over the years, I have developed certain methods to establish the most effective ways to organize sessions with different students. Because of this, along with my own experience, I am able to help musicians succeed in whatever musical goals they have set for themselves.

Zach is great at making learning fun, he seems to know how to motivate each student in their own way. I would highly recommend Zach as a teacher!
