About ZFDS

Zach Field Drum Studios was started in 1999 in West Newbury, MA. After many years of giving lessons in West Newbury, the studio grew to capacity and needed more space and more instructors. In March of 2008, Zach Field Drum Studios moved to the Newburyport location where there was more space for the studio to grow. Continue Reading >


Pre-K (ages 3-5)


Kids will play hand drums, shakers, woodblocks, maracas and even get to try drum set. They will get to work on playing as a group, individually (if they would like), try some call and response and learn some very basic rhythm reading. The main thing is that they have fun! This class is great for teaching the students about rhythm, how to follow directions/listening, working with others, and just enjoy music.

They will begin to learn the names of the piano keys and learn to recognize some basic music symbols.

The Gong Meditation Project

Zach started ‘The Gong Meditation Project’ in November of 2010 after trying to find ways to escape from the everyday stresses of life. After years of attempting silent meditation, he thought it would be a good idea to try and play some soothing pitched gongs to distract the mind and assist with the meditation process. After many hours of recording private gong sessions, listening back and perfecting this live meditative and healing music, Zach is pleased to share “The Gong Meditation Project” with everyone. Join us for the next meditation at Repose Yoga in the Tannery on Sunday, January 27th, 10:45-11:45am.
