Zane is a knowledgeable passionate teacher. What I enjoy most is his willingness to gear his lessons to your needs as a student, often asking you what you are more interested in studying or where you feel your weaknesses are. He is always ready to answer your questions, and his enthusiasm and love of teaching is apparent from the first lesson.” – Elaine Orsillo (Musician / Music Student)

What I like most about Zane Kuchera is he has the perfect combination of technical expertise, musical insight and sweetness of temper.  His studio is so comfortable and professional, but what always drew me the most was how personable he is.  He’s kind and considerate, a good listener and truly cares about people and their musical vision.  It’s a winning combination.” – Amy Syd Babcock (Songwriter / Studio Client)

Zane Kuchera  has many years of experience working as a composer, arranger and music producer on projects for clients worldwide.  His technical, sound engineering  and music theory knowledge, paired with his many years of practical experience in the studio is an asset to any songwriter, vocalist and musician and that, together with his patience and easy manner, makes him a pleasure to work with!  Zane, being a singer himself, is sensitive to the needs of the artist, which is an added bonus!” – Zola Shuman (Musician / Studio Client)

After working with Zane for 17 years I have more to say than can fit into a short recommendation.  Zane has a rare mix of talents that set him apart from many professional studio producers.  He is both a teacher and a follower, an expert and a learner, a highly experienced musician and a lifelong student of music’s fundamentals, an authentic critic and an open-hearted listener, a detail-oriented engineer and a ‘go-for-it-all’ artist’s champion.   Zane’s embrace of such a wide range of qualities have meant that I have permission to take risks and feel confident that, start to finish, Zane and his studio resources will be there to guide the way.  Truly, I have gone further with my music than I ever imagined thanks to Zane’s work and his remarkable commitment to both the highest quality of sound engineering and the highest quality of personal artistic style.  Anyone working with him is in the best of hands to manifest their creative vision.” – Martha Rogers (Songwriter / Studio Client)

I’ve known Zane Kuchera for close to two decades now through music collaboration and composition, and his insight and skills have only gotten better over time. Although a formal musical education is an important asset, to have the ear, and have the gift of music from the soul and be able to convey that to other artists’ projects is a unique talent. Zane’s expertise in production, arrangement and composition takes a musical seed and lets it bloom. I highly recommend Zane Kuchera for any artist’s project.” – Jon Gilbert Leavitt (Composer / Studio Client)

Zane’s studio is polished, professional, and high-tech, but also comfortable and welcoming a singer’s dream, much like Zane himself.  Highly recommended!” – Richard Wayne (Actor / Studio Client)

“I spent the morning listening to the songs on this CD. In a few words (well, more than a few) Mr. Kuchera’s music is unique, beautiful, powerful, personal and moving. When a singer can open up his soul and share his feelings with people he’s never met — that’s an artist. These are not merely lyrics set to music. They are moments and images accompanied by simplicity in music which, in their own way, produce rich images and memories for the listener to savor. By feeling comfortable about himself he, in turn, feels comfortable about sharing these feelings. That’s admirable! 

If there is one negative about this CD it has to be this — I wanted to hear more. I eagerly await the next collection.”David Morrow (Playwright / Studio Client)

“The (Shakespeare) production (of As You Like It) was……. memorable for the original music composed by Zane Kuchera.

“Zane Kuchera has many years of experience working as a composer, arranger and producer on music projects for clients worldwide.   His musical ear, creativity, knowledge and practical experience is an asset to any writer and musician and that, together with his patience and easy manner, makes him a pleasure to work with!”Zola (Musician, South Africa)

Zane is skilled in music production and has a professional attitude to match.

“Zane worked with me composing the music for the five songs William Shakespeare wrote for his play, AS YOU LIKE IT. Unlike some composers, Zane readily understood what was needed and went about the task without flinching! Working with Zane was indeed a pleasure and I’d do it again in a heartbeat … music is unique, beautiful, powerful, personal and moving. When a singer can open up his soul and share his feelings with people he’s never met — that’s an artist.”David Logan-Morrow (Playwright)

“I was so pleased to witness Zane’s debut as a solo cabaret singer at Amazing Things this week. Zane is a true delight as a person: kind and gentle and compassionate with a well of emotions that is both deep and very near the surface. These words could also be used to describe him as a performer. In a set that included John Bucchino, Jimmy Webb, and original work, Zane charmed and moved all of us and delivered a very special 40 minutes of warmth on a cold night. Bravo, Zane!”Wayne Fritsche (Actor/Songwriter/Vocalist)

“An engaging performance where Zane, with his tall and handsome elegance, peers into your soul with his clear blue eyes and caresses you with his warm soothing vocals.

Thank you for a splendid evening.”Leslie Holmes (Host, Amazing Things Arts Center)
