ZACH

Music Specialist

He/Him 

Zach's musical journey started at an early age with his father's love of playing classical music around the house. This led to Zach choosing to study the cello beginning in 5th grade. He started playing guitar at age 11 when he found an old forgotten electric guitar at his cousin's apartment. Noticing the parallels between the cello and guitar Zach started using the knowledge of his formal cello training to inform his learning the guitar. Zach graduated from the University of Wisconsin-Stevens Point with a Bachelor of Music degree. He has since been involved in many aspects of the music industry both on and off the stage including radio dj, record company liason, and front-of-house sound. Zach's goal is to show young people the magic of music and help that foundation grow into a lifetime of musical enjoyment!

kaylee

Club Group Leader

I am a Wisconsinite, born and raised, having grown up in a small town only 45 minutes away from our capital city of Madison! After graduating from my tiny town, I decided to cut out the 45 minutes and get an education at the University of Wisconsin- Madison where I am currently a junior pursuing a degree in Communication Science and Disorders as well as a certificate in Theatre and Drama. Many would consider me a theatre geek, as I can and will sing or dance at the drop of a hat. Creative Soul Camp allows me to funnel my creativity and passion to the next generation of singers, dancers, and performers alike and encourage them to follow their passion wherever it takes them.
