Our piano faculty Jason Zachariah, is one of India’s most active and accomplished players, working in a wide range of contemporary styles. He is a one man orchestra who s the Piano, Keyboard, Melodica, Trumpet, Trombone, Euphonium, Bass, Guitar, Voice and Percussion.

He currently plays with bands as musically diverse as Allegro Fudge, Bhoomi, and Jason Zac Band, among others. He was also a member of erstwhile, but widely feted local outfits like technical-death metallers Extinct Reflections, and the prog-tinged rockers Black Earth. Jason’s facility across genres, his theoretical and technical skills, as well as musical intelligence have enabled him to develop into a prolific composer with some of his current projects. He has three solo albums to his credit and is currently working on his fourth album.

He is one of the few AVID certified Pro Tools operators in the country, and maintains a keen interest in audio recording and music technology regularly assisting bands and singer- songwriters with mixing, editing, production and mastering. Jason has also scored music for Anmol Vellani’s stage productions of ‘Exit the King’ and ‘Woyzeck’.

He counts the Dire Straits, Abba, Queen, Deep Purple, The Beatles, Jordan Rudess, Mozart, Chopin and Bach and Hymns, among his formative influences.

Winner of The Rolling Stones award for ‘Best Keyboardist’ in India two years consecutively, Jason Zachariah is the ideal choice to teach this instrument. Jason has developed a unique syllabus to teach the instrument combining various techniques and exercises that he has personally devised through years of playing experience.
