"Perfect! Zach is a fantastic piano teacher. My daughter Yasmine greatly enjoys the lessons with Zach. His extensive musical knowledge and experience turn any lesson into a private Masterclass.
Zach has an individual approach to every pupil, always explains what caused this or that problem and how to fix it. All his lessons are very informative and interesting, he teaches not only the technique of playing but always tries to make you see a story in any piece of music.
Zach has the ability to help you to transform your playing in term of sound and musicality, which can only be achieved through such quality lessons. He supports you through the entire process of learning a piece until the moment you play it live. If you want to learn to play piano, Zach is that very person who can help you to do it." - Coco
