Introduction: I feel that my passion for drumming, education, and vast experience performing in very high levels of the music industry set me apart from other instructors. I feel I have a stronger understanding of what is expected from drummers in today's professional setting that I can pass on to my students. I've played drums live and in the studio for several years. As exciting as that can be, I've always felt it was more fulfilling, in many ways, to sit one-on-one with a student who is interested in the art of drumming, break things down to easily digestible fundamentals and then put it all back together. This process itself brings me great joy, but the real fun begins when I start to see my students' long-term goals/dreams become reality.

I went into the lessons with some self-taught experience, and zero knowledge of terms/basics. Zhach is doing a phenomenal job of filling the holes in my knowledge, and expanding it into new territory. Lessons are an ideal blend of experimentation, new concepts, and the repetition of previously learned material.

Zhach has been an amazing teacher! He really knows how to connect with my son. He is always so excited to show Zhach his progress during his weekly lessons. We are so happy to have found such a great teacher!

Zhach is a great teacher and wonderful person. He is very professional but also personal and our son thinks the world of him. His patience and positive attitude encourage Noah. We couldn't ask for a better instructor for our 7 year old.

When I started off, I kind of felt lost because I didn't know much about drums, but he really broke it down and made me understand it.
