My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

Great experience with Zach. I'm still learning how to sing properly, though.

Relates to a 13 year old very well and is very professional.

supportive and encouraging

I found Zach through 'take lessons' after my daughter had a few years with an intense classical pianist. I want my daughter to have fun and appreciate music and not feel the intense pressure she was feeling with our previous instructor. Zach was the perfect choice. My daughter loves her lessons. Zach does take time off for his professional endevors. Good for him. He has always let us know and connected with us when he returns.

Our 12 year old daughter has been taking voice lessons with Zach for almost a year and he is absolutely amazing. He's taught her so much and made it so interesting for her. We HIGHLY recommend him as a music instructor!

Great with children and a very good teaching asthetic but not reliable or courteous

We were so happy with Zach's positive disposition, flexibility, experience, and teaching skills that we managed around his many interruptions (4 and 6 week absences) as he pursued personal and professional endeavors. However, Zach scheduled lessons after a 3 month hiatus only to not show-up and never notify us since. We were actually worried that something happened to him, but see now he is back on take lessons scheduling with new students. Hmm?
