Violin is my speciality. Although my focus is mainly on classical music, I can also teach a little bit of fiddle, pop, and jazz. My focus is on forming good habits while avoiding the bad. The student will learn how to listen to music intently and intelligently, how to read treble clef, and most importantly, how to shape and perform the pieces learned. All lessons should be approached with a diligent attitude while having fun. Artistry is birthed when passion and consistency collide!

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!
