About Zachariah

I have taught private lessons for over 15 years to children, ambitious students and older adults looking to get back in the saddle. I have been performing professionally for over ten years in Symphonies, Big Bands, orchestra pit, polka bands, chamber ensembles and show bands. I have performed with celebrities from Jackie Evancho to Don
Rickles.

I am a professional trombone player and music enthusiast that loves sharing music with others. Wether that be performing music for others, teaching others about music or simply enjoying and appreciating music with others, musi is something to be shared.

After over 10 years of college experience, I have had the privilege of studying the universal language of the world and becoming acquainted with its practices, history, and performance. I am always eager to share the knowledge and experience I have accumulated with others so they can explore their own musical paths and embark on a musician journey, in whatever capacity that may be.

Please feel free to reach out whether you're interested in having a conversation about music or learning more about music or are interested in being able to better appreciate and express yourself through music. Stay for a short while or stay forever, I'll be happy to oblige!

Approved subjects are in bold.

Approved subjects

In most cases, tutors gain approval in a subject by passing a proficiency exam. For some subject areas, like music and art, tutors submit written requests to demonstrate their proficiency to potential students. If a tutor is interested but not yet approved in a subject, the subject will appear in non-bold font. Tutors need to be approved in a subject prior to beginning lessons.

General Music

I have a Bachelor's Degree in Music from a Conservatory where the music instruction outside my specific major was very intense and thorough. I also have a Master's Degree in music where I took several pedagogy courses that have enabled me to teach general music in public schools and tutor students in general music.

Music History

I am an avid Music History buff that has spent over 10 years in college studying music gathering knowledge about the history of music to one day share it with others. I have tutored in music history and done presentations on art history and music history to senior living centers. I have two degrees in music that included heavy course listings in various music history courses.

Trombone

I have performed trombone professionally for over 15 years and taught private lessons for 15 years as well. I've taught students from ages 7 up to 65 yrs old. I've also coached chamber ensembles and have two performance degrees in trombone.

Trumpet

I have been teaching trumpet for seven years to younger, beginning students. I've also coached trumpet students at the collegiate level and coached chamber ensembles including a brass quintet, brass trio and an 11-piece brass ensemble.
