Zach Stewart Guitar Teacher, Bass Guitar Teacher, Piano Teacher, Drum Teacher
Zach's first memory of hearing music was Bob Marley's "Natty Dread." He was just a child but he can clearly remember feeling the thumping bass lines, gritty percussion and bluesy horns. It was a soulful introduction to the world of instruments. The first time he made music was when his best friend got a guitar. Zach's first time playing a 'real show' was at Club Babyhead when he was 15 with a hardcore group called Redline. He opened up for all his favorite bands and music gave him a huge circle friends. Later in life he packed up, headed west and landed on Venice Beach, then formed an electro-rock project and played The Roxy and The Whisky a Go Go. His band got some label interest.
Eventually his Venice Beach bohemian paradise got taken over by the tech industry and he headed south for New Orleans. Living in a city where music is played throughout the streets 24 hours a day truly gave him an appreciation for the way acoustic instruments can cry, sing and unite people. Music has taken him all over the country and he can't imagine a life without this creative outlet. He is excited to write his next chapter right here at School of Rock North Providence. Zach teaches piano, drums, guitar and bass guitar.
