I am a Pianist, Music Educator, and Project Designer residing in Virginia's Shenandoah Valley.

Through supportive, creative instruction

 and innovative projects, I help others to discover

 that, to learn well, one must embrace

 the process.

arts for the community


"Expressions of Home" is a collaborative arts-integrative project by artistic educators Zach Dishman and Natalie Doughty to benefit Central Valley Habitat for Humanity, and highlight the work they do in the Shenandoah Valley. 

 Awarded an "Arts for Education" grant by the Arts Council of the Valley, "Expressions of Home" was exhibited at various locations in Rockingham County/Harrisonburg City Spring-Fall 2019. The project included a student showcase, local community sing-a-long and art workshop, and a final reception. Partners included John Wayland Elementary School, Blue Sprocket Sound, Explore More Discover More Museum, and the Church of the Incarnation.

Read about the project in a news story by the Daily News Record! Check out the photo gallery and sample project audio below.
