Zach Gordon


Zach was introduced to percussion through his school’s band program and quickly found his calling in music. He went on to earn his A.A. Degree in Orchestral Percussion Performance at Schenectady County Community College, then his B.A. in Music Business Management from Berklee College of Music in 2016. 

Upon relocating to Austin, TX, Zach performed, toured, recorded, and taught professionally while managing his original progressive rock group Chronologist (who’s work was featured on similar playlists to members of Dream Theater, Steve Vai, Joe Satriani, and others of the like). 

Today, Zach continues to perform and record with artists across many genres including Jazz, Fusion, Pop, Hip-Hop/R&B, Funk, Rock, Metal, Country, Blues, Latin and World, Orchestral, and Theatrical. Some of Zach’s major recording and performance clients are Hulu, Call of Duty, and The Kennedy family.

Zach aims to help students find their own voices on the drum set and piano by guiding their personal discovery and practice of music to fit into their lives as a source of enjoyment and creativity.
