About this pro
Teaching Philosophy My goal as a teacher is to help my students play music and achieve their individual goals while getting the best possible sound from the guitar. After a solid musical foundation is established, I have found that technique is learned best when in tandem with repertoire that supports it. While I encourage my students to explore various and any genres of music, I do request that my students are open to learning technique as it equips the student with the skills necessary to tackle any genre of music. Student Materials Materials that are required for a successful experience in both lessons and practice include: An instrument, strings, a foot-stool, music stand, and a metronome. Typically, I will give a short weekly listening to my students as it is my belief as a teacher that exposure the varied music available to guitarists will promote musicality and excite students about potential results of their practice. What I enjoy most is finding what excites and motivates my students. Once a student finds the thing about the guitar that really interests them, we are able to explore an entire musical world together and this is when students really excel.

Always a great pleasure to work with! I've been taking guitar lessons with Zachary for about a year now, and there is really no better teacher around. He is a great classical talent and has so much to offer a student. Five stars!May 3, 2016

- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I usually like to have a short call before our first lesson to determine your goals for the lessons. During this call, I may recommend a book to purchase if I feel that there is one specific book that will better serve your needs. However, some materials that I give during lessons come from outside sources as well - these are provided by me.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I hold a Bachelors of Music in Music Education, a Bachelors of Music in Music Performance (guitar), and a Masters of Music in Music Performance (guitar). Currently, I am pursuing my doctoral degree in guitar at Johns Hopkins University.
