Violinist, string Arranger, Composer
My name is Zakhar Valaha. I am a violinist, arranger and composer. I have been engaged in violin since 6 years of age. I received higher education as a classical musician but I have great practical experience in groups in the style of pop, jazz rock, blues, folk and gospel. I am currently working as an arranger in the Ukrainian cinema industry.
I have a home studio with good installation, always ready to go! The soft, exclusive sound of my custom-made violin will add a truly professional sound to your project. I will be glad to help you raise your project to a new level. I look forward to collaborating with you!

Zakhar is an incredibly gifted and versatile violinist. There is nothing he can't play - from square dance to Stravinsky! You won't be disappointed!
Incredible talent, quick turnaround, goes extra mile.
Very fast turnaround, highly skilled professional.
Another amazing experience working with Zahkar. Highly recommended!!!
Zahkar is an incredible violin player who is easy to work with and delivers expressive world class performances. I'm going to start a new project with him right away.
I've been looking for a violinist that can play with great expression, make quality recordings, and use his/her musical intuition to fill in the blanks when I don't have time to write in all the dynamic details in sheet music. My search is over- Zakhar is my new go-to violinist for SoundBetter projects. He's excellent. Very highly recommended.
I couldn't stress enough how happy I was to work with him. Beautiful tone and interpretation, pitch perfect, he understands perfectly what the music needs. I've worked with dozens of violinists in the past, but as long as Zakhar will be around I'm done looking for anybody else. Дякую!
What a fantastic player! He was super receptive of my feedback and gave me a stellar performance. Awesome!!
Use Zakhar, he gets it. He listens, is extremely musical and sensitive to what he hears. I would definitely use him again.
Highest quality, super fast turnaround. Highly recommended!
Zakhar is the consumate professional musician. His artistry is impeccable and he is such a great guy to work with as well. If you are looking for the absolute best of the best when it comes to playing and arranging, look no further. Zakhar is your only choice!
