BIO


Zach Heyde (b. 1993) is a composer for animation, film, and game currently residing in Nashville, TN. He specializes in both orchestral and ambient music, characterized by evocative harmonies and textures. He is a skilled pianist, and performs with Frank Tedesco as “Frank & Zach Piano Duets”—a YouTube channel with over 150k subscribers to date.

Heyde holds a B.A. summa cum laude in music composition from the Hartt School. During his time at Hartt, Heyde composed actively for student films, animations, theater, and the concert hall, and performed with local hip-hop/soul band Broca’s Area. He was commissioned by Alfred Music Publishing to arrange numerous piano duets with Frank Tedesco, and several years later the duo founded sheet music webstore Stems Up Sound.

After graduating Hartt in 2015, Heyde taught piano and composition in his hometown of Darien, performing frequently with singer-songwriter Griffin Anthony before moving to Nashville the following year. He currently works as an assistant music copyist for Engraver’s Mark Music and Jason Loffredo Music Publishing. His recent work includes scoring The Hard Candy Kid, a full-length mockumentary directed by the Beals Brothers.
