I believe Zachary to be a very talented musician, percussionist, and teacher. His superb technique, versatility, and musical sensitivity make him a gifted performer while his enthusiasm and continuous desire to keep learning is a wonderful example for students.

My attention was drawn to the musicality and rhythm of Zachary in the orchestra pit. Whether the score called for a ship’s bell, a bird-whistle, or any number of percussion instruments, I thoroughly enjoyed Zachary’s enthusiastic/energetic participation. He was always on time and on point.
— Kevin, audience member
Zachary brings to the table a rare blend of energy, professionalism, and absolute mastery of his craft...treating every moment as an opportunity to inspire and teach.
