Rick Z. started playing the piano at the age of nine, thanks to his encouraging and supportive parents. Rick has recorded and performed professionally with many accomplished musicians throughout New York, Los Angeles and Las Vegas.
Rick Zuccaro has written over 150 songs, and has released his music portfolio appropriately titled: "Songs of a Lifetime."
“Music has been such an integral part of my life, that I feel compelled to do everything I can to encourage children to take an interest in learning to play an instrument. Our school systems have to focus on important subjects like Math and English, but I would like to bring an awareness that Math and English are extremely prevalent in music theory and composition, throughout every musical style. There is a direct mathematical correlation between all the musical notes, as well as vocabulary skills, creative writing, and freedom of expression that is achieved through learning, performing and writing music.” Rick Zuccaro
