Hey, my name is Zac Barnes!

So, why the Saucy Sounds Collective? Because I'm absolutely passionate about everything related to music and gear.

I've been playing music my entire life, but I didn't get my start on the piano until I was 19 years old and in college. I was fortunate to have a few fantastic music mentors in my life. That really helped me progress and develop as a musician.

Now, this platform is my way of paying it forward, sharing the knowledge and experience I've gathered over the years. But it's not just about me; it's about creating a community for piano players like YOURSELF – a place to engage, learn, grow, and thrive!

I want you to build a solid foundation of the 'hows' and 'whys' behind all the musical concepts, and ditch the “Just Memorize It” pattern when it comes to music.

Because this very pattern not only makes you struggle with your practice commitment. But also stops you from having FUN making music. 

And to make the learning as structured and digestible as possible, I've dedicated years of work to crafting a program that achieves just that.

Is learning to play piano hard?
  • The piano is actually one of the easiest instruments to play as a beginner. That makes it–hands down–the best instrument to begin learning music on.
  • Piano is also the easiest instrument for understanding music theory. Because scales and intervals are all laid out visually.
  • If you want to play another instrument, learn the piano first! Other instruments like guitar, trumpet, and clarinet, take weeks or even months to develop hand coordination or mouth formation.
Can I contact you if I have any struggles or questions?
