Zachary Bergeman

Zachary Bergeman is a Florida born and raised musician whose primary focus has been the violin since the age of six. Zachary graduated from the University of Central Florida with a Bachelor of Music Education and a primary focus on the violin. Zachary is currently working towards his Master of Violin Performance at the University of South Florida. Zachary began studying the violin at school when he was 6 years old and since then he has known that he could never have a career in anything but music. After he changed schools, Bergeman asked his parents to enroll him in private lessons at the Jupiter Academy of Music in Jupiter, FL. This is where he took lessons for 11 years with Ms. Laura Mozena, only leaving to pursue his dream of becoming a music teacher.

Zachary Bergeman attended public school in a county where orchestras were not prevalent in the average music building. However, that did not stop him from performing throughout secondary school. In 6th grade, Zachary joined as a percussionist in the Independence Middle School Concert Band. In 8th grade he achieved the title of percussion captain in the band leadership team. In high school, while continuing his studies at the Jupiter Academy of Music, Bergeman participated in marching band, concert band, and jazz band. In 10th grade Zachary secured the position of percussion captain in the high school leadership team. He played the quintuplets in the marching band, various percussion instruments in the concert band, and he played an interesting role of a bass guitar on an electric keyboard for the jazz band.
Throughout high school, Zachary was enrolled in the Early Childhood Teacher Education Academy at William T. Dwyer High School. In this academy, Zachary created and learned how to teach lesson plans, communicate with students, teachers, and parents, and was CPR certified. During his senior year, Zachary was nominated to represent William T. Dwyer High School as the nominee for instrumental performance in the annual Palm Beach Pathfinders scholarship competition. Zachary was also nominated and awarded with the Palm Beach Career and Technical Education Student of the Year award.
At the University of Central Florida, he studied privately with Dr. Ross Winter and has worked with fellow colleagues in Dr. Winter’s studio. 

Zachary performed at various venues, including Steinmetz Hall at the Dr. Phillips Center for Performing Arts, with the UCF Symphony Orchestra and the UCF Chamber Orchestra under the maestro, Dr. Chung Park. Zachary is a member of the American String Teacher Association and the Suzuki Association of the Americas.

Zachary enjoys teaching and performing a variety of musical genres on the violin including classical, fiddle, and soundtrack music. In addition to his studies at UCF, Zachary taught privately for three years in music studios around Orlando including The Orlando Fine Arts Academy and the Oviedo School of Music. Zachary now brings his teaching to Tampa and is excited to be a part of the Barrett School of Music. Zachary loves teaching and being able to share his passion for music with everyone he comes across!
