About Zack


Bio

Bluegrass is a dynamic and beautiful form of music invented by Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys in the 1940's. If you're like most mandolin players, you've heard about Bill Monroe, and probably have some idea of the kind of style he played in. Well, fast forward 70 years, and a lot of mandolin players have come and go, many have learned Bill's style, and some of them have taken the style and technique even further, as bluegrass has branched and grown in many different directions. ...

Bluegrass is a dynamic and beautiful form of music invented by Bill Monroe and his Bluegrass Boys in the 1940's. If you're like most mandolin players, you've heard about Bill Monroe, and probably have some idea of the kind of style he played in. Well, fast forward 70 years, and a lot of mandolin players have come and go, many have learned Bill's style, and some of them have taken the style and technique even further, as bluegrass has branched and grown in many different directions.

Mandolin is a very cool instrument, but tricky, especially at first. It's good to have someone there to help you along, help you avoid annoying habits and unnecessary mistakes, and show you the basics. I enjoy playing the mandolin, and talking with people about it. I'm always trying to get better, and I like helping others do the same.

I do my best to make my lessons fun. If practicing mandolin isn't fun, then maybe you're trying to practice the wrong stuff. There are so many aspects to mandolin playing that if practicing something isn't fun for you, just move on to something else.

Sometimes the best lessons are the ones where you do a lot of playing. Some of the best lessons are the ones where you talk about concepts of the music, and only play for a short bit. It's all about you, and how you learn best. I work well with beginners, up to advanced players, introverts and outroverts, kids and adults.
