Zach began receiving guitar lessons in blues, rock, folk and country music at the age of ten. From that point he has played in numerous worship bands, rock bands, college jazz ensembles, and currently studies classical guitar repertoire while working as a session guitarist in local studios and playing gigs in the Philadelphia area.
Zach currently holds an A.A. in Music from Montgomery County Community College and is pursuing his B.M. in Music Education at West Chester University. Beyond his extensive guitar experience, he also has experience as a singer/songwriter as well as playing the drums, bass guitar, and piano.
Zach encourages students to work hard, find their voice on their instrument(s) while sustaining versatility and have fun with the musical learning process.

“Mr. Zach is a great music teacher. He is patient, polite, nice, lively, and knows how to get a quiet kid to talk. My son says that Mr. Zach is great at explaining music so he understands. He never gives up on my son. Mr. Zach makes music fun by letting my son pick songs he wants to learn along with music he thinks my son should learn to progress. We are so thankful for Mr. Zach!“
