Introduction: My passion for drumming and education as well as my level of experience certainly sets me apart from most instructors. As an active professional drummer for the past decade, my vast experience performing in nearly every level of the music industry affords me a knowledge of the skills expected from drummers at each stage. I can pass that knowledge on to my students depending on each individual's goals. I guide beginner students on what they should be practicing and focusing on. I help intermediates with learning their school band music or jamming with friends for the first time. I’ve got advanced amateurs that I assist in preparing music for their auditions, gigs, recitals. I’ve helped pros reignite their inspiration, sharpen specific skills, prepare for big studio sessions, tours or concert/arena performances. I’ve even acted as a career coach for several pro players through the challenging business/financial side of the music industry. I’m still an active live performer and studio musician. 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.

Zhach has incredible technical skill and the ability to break down those skills into easy to understand pieces and concepts. He explains what to do, how to do it and why to help his students build the fundamentals to make his students better drummers. He plays along with the student to help them grasp each new concept he presents, then uses music tracks and other percussion to create a real world feel to the lesson to ensure the student gets used to what being part of a group will feel like. He is an encouraging teacher and makes his lessons fun. He also uses technology allowing him to teach anyone where they are. I consider myself very fortunate he took me on as a student.

My 13 y/o has been working with Zhach online for a couple of weeks and only one word can truly evaluate my feelings...AMAZING! I am so thankful we stumbled across Zhach on thumbtack. My son has been self taught for over a year. He's done well to be accepted into jazz band and continue with his advanced band class in middle school, but he needed more! He needed one-one-one instruction to perfect the basics and find his groove. We are on the right path thanks to Zhach's investment! Zhach is a great teacher and is passionate about drumming! He offers a variety of options to work with your schedule/budget.

Details: 10 - 13 years old • No formal training; some self-taught experience • Can read percussion notation • Can read sheet music • Understands note durations and rests • Traditional drum kit • Jazz • Yes, the student already has drums • 30 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)

As an old dude, but new drummer, Zhach immediately helped me to conquer my performance anxiety. Zhach listened and asked questions to understand my goals, chief among them, learning how to learn to practice productively. We are just getting rolling now, but patience, the ability to convey concepts clearly, and a genuine enthusiasm for seeing students grow all shine through.

Details: 45 - 64 years old • No formal training; some self-taught experience • Understands note durations and rests • Can read percussion notation • Traditional drum kit • Rock • Blues • Jazz • Folk • Yes, the student already has drums • 60 minutes • Remotely (phone or internet)
