Recent performances include: being an apprentice at the Masterworks Music Festival, performing solo Bach repertoire at the Hylton Performing Arts Center, and premiered of Wynton Marsalis' blues symphony with the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony. Zach is also a violist as well and is capable of teaching piano lessons to beginners.

Zachary is an outstanding violinist and it was a pleasure to have had him as a member of the Shenandoah Conservatory Symphony Orchestra. He is a passionate and serious musician and an accomplished violinist. He is also a wonderful person and a great colleague!

I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Very attentive communicative teacher.
If you have a child who is playing the violin or thinking of starting the violin, I highly recommend Zachary. He will give your child mainstream detailed instruction with a great enthusiasm, wholeheartedly. What can you ask more for a teacher!
