Zak’s teaching style hones in the importance and understanding that everyone learns differently. Putting yourself on the same level as the students learning style, understanding how they learn best, and then explaining the material is how you have a happy, successful learning experience. Experienced in many styles including rock, metal, funk, jazz, and classical Zak’s well roundedness has influenced the way he listens, thinks about and teaches music. Most importantly he feels that establishing and constantly practicing your fundamentals will propel your understanding and ability to new heights.
