My life is driven by a need to create music, not only for my own enjoyment but also for the benefit of others. Music means everything to me. It has changed my life, and I hope to use it to continue to enhance others’ lives.
Music has given Zach the opportunity to give back to the community. As mentioned above, he recently became certified as a guitar teacher for the Warrior Music Foundation, helping active duty military members, veterans, and their families cope with PTSD through the healing power of music. He has played at fundraisers for local charities, such as Burgers and Bands for Suicide Prevention in Severna Park, MD; Feeding the Homeless—A Veterans Day Tribute in Baltimore, MD; Junior Achievement of Central Maryland at The Meyerhoff in Baltimore to help support K-12 youth in working toward academic and economic success; and the Cystic Fibrosis Charity Walk at the Naval Academy Stadium. As well, he has enjoyed the privilege of being able to play at many area festivals, including Annapolis First Sunday Arts Festival, Bay Music Festival, Eastport-a-Rockin’, Annapolis Bar-Bay-Q Event, Annapolis Chocolate Binge Festival, and the Nextival.
