"Zak Sandler is an incredible piano player and music director, but his uniqueness is that he has as much command of the room as he does the piano. He's the best there is: both as musician and leader." 

       -Marshall Pailet

"Zak is a phenomenal accompanist and vocal coach! He has musically directed several shows I have done and continues to help me with audition material. He is a kind and patient teacher as well. If you are considering Zak for a vocal coach look no further, he's wonderful!"
