Viola can be an exciting instrument to learn and master. So how you get there is up to you, but practice is required to succeed with any instrument. Taking lessons with me, you'll be provided with technique that was developed by esteemed artists and pioneers, such as Lionel Tertis. I have a B.Mus in Performance from Northern Illinois where I studied with the very talented and musical, Anthony DeVroye of the Avalon String Quartet. Additionally, I've attended the Chicago College of Performing Arts and studied there with Lawrence Neuman of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra and Roger Chase -a former student of Tertis- who is a major figure in the Viola world for his artistry and masterful control of the viola.
The study of chamber music has afforded me the honor of working with even more musicians, including Shmeul Ashkenasi and Mathias Tacke, both of the Vermeer Quartet.
Should a student decide to take lessons with me, we will begin on laying a solid foundation of technique on top of which we will build music repertoire. I am also Suzuki certified! However, I intend to create an all encompassing lesson plan to help propel you into whichever music lifestyle you want.
The single most important thing about your education is YOU! If you're not getting what you want, I want to hear. If there are pieces you want to learn, I want to teach you how to play them.
Lastly, I'm also a trained luthier and repairman, I can help you with anything wrong on your instrument and bow.

About Zachary G.

I have a B.Mus in Performance, for viola through Northern Illinois University where I studied with Anthony DeVroye. Prior to attending NIU, I was a student at the Chicago College of Performing Arts where I studied with Lawrence Neuman and Roger Chase. In addition, I also studied with Stacia Spencer at the Northwestern Music Academy at Northwestern University, in Illinois.
During my time at NIU, I served as vice principal viola of the LaSalle Symphony Orchestra where we have had the honor of performing with great artists such as Rachel Barton-Pine and Mathias Tacke.
All throughout my schooling, I've been in steady contact with many members of the Chicago Symphony and many guest artists such as the illustrious Jane Glover.
After college, I immediately went into working for a local repair shop and took repair classes with Hans Jurgen Nebel, of the former Rembrandt-Wurlitzer Company in New York, where Hans was a protege of Simon Sacconi. Along with the lessons from Hans Jurgen, I received amazing instructions and guidance of Yuri Saenz, and I achieved a skillful level of luthiery and repair for stringed instruments and bows.
