    Zakhar was incredible to work with! Super fast turnaround time and he pretty much nailed it first try. Not only is he an excellent player, but he also has an incredible ear for what the track needs and recorded some extra melodies/harmonies that really enhanced the piece.

    If I could give this guy 6 stars, I would. A future Hans Zimmer right here :)

    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!

    Use Zakhar, he gets it. He listens, is extremely musical and sensitive to what he hears. I would definitely use him again.
