“I teach master classes and workshops all across the country and Canada and I was not prepared for what I walked into at ZAK-PAC in Philadelphia (King of Prussia) in November, 2013! It was an incredible experience- the faculty, the numerous classes that were offered, the professionalism and most of all the amazing students and parents. This was a huge endeavor that I feel I gained almost as much from as the participants themselves!”
