Composer/Arranger/Theorist/Instructor/Pianist/Percussionist of 19 years. Very caring, energetic, and patient. I can teach you how to play your favorite songs, I can teach you to write your own songs, and I can teach you how to improvise like a pro! I am experienced in teaching classical technique as well as pop, and all styles from jazz to contemporary. I also integrate a healthy amount of music theory in lessons, which really solidifies your understanding of how music works. You'll be writing your own piano concertos in no time!

About Zack D.

I am a professional composer for video games and film! I created the company, Moving Dimensions, in 2014 and have been producing and writing music for my own video games ever since.

I've been writing music ever since I was old enough to hold a pencil. After 19 years of perfecting my craft, I want to pass on the information I have learned. I double majored in music composition and music theory from the University of Louisville in 2012.

I began my teaching career right out of high school, I arranged music for, and instructed marching band percussion students. A few years later, I moved onto writing music for, teaching, and directing musical theater. All while giving private lessons in composition and piano on the side. I then spent 6 years in Los Angeles, writing for the big screen and getting my own video game production company off the ground. I learned a tremendous amount working with film and musical directors out there, and when the company became self-sustaining, I moved close to family in PA.

Because of my enthusiasm for music, by excellent communication skills, and overwhelming amount of patience, I can teach you to become an expert on music composition, arranging, orchestration, music theory, playing things by ear, the piano, any percussion instrument, and even improvisation! I'm very fluent in all styles of music, from R&B and jazz to classical and contemporary. Reach out today and schedule a lesson! Let's play music!

I have taken piano since I was a little girl but I stopped taking them in middle school. I continued to study music theory but I lost my knack for playing. Zack encouraged me to start playing again and helped to reteach the instrument to me. He has a knack for making piano interesting to someone with a short attention span.

Just an awesome teacher. I feel like I have such a solid understanding of music now. Not only writing but playing and listening to it as well. Really looking forward to the next lesson.

Music has never come easy me. Up until Zack, I had never found a teacher that helped me get it. When he teaches he takes his time and makes sure you’re getting it. Not only that but he makes sure you have fun! Whenever he’s teaching I can’t help but have fun. He’s always cracking jokes and making you feel comfortable. I love music lessons with him. I’m so glad he’s a teacher and I hope he helps many more kids like me to become better musicians.

Music theory has always fascinated me but I could never quite get the hang of it. Zack explains things clearly and works thoroughly to make sure you understand each topic and how it works before moving on. I recommend him to all of my music friends, and if you're reading this I recommend him to you,
too! You won't regret it, he's worth every penny.
