My Story

I have been a private music instructor in the Annapolis Valley for over 15 years. I teach guitar, bass, drums, mandolin, banjo, and ukulele. 

When I was 19, I attended The Musicians Institute in Hollywood, California where I studied guitar and graduated with honours. After that I moved back to the Annapolis Valley and started up The Bernard Zinck Music Studios where I have been teaching music ever since.

As a performer, I have played with almost every musician at almost every venue in the Valley. I have a classic rock and blues band named " The Bernie Zinck Band", in which I sing and play guitar. I have also been a back-up musician for many other artists over the years.


Currently I have been focusing my energy on two musical projects: The first is song writing and composition for film, television and commercial use'

The second is a 15 piece blues/soul/funk/R&B/Rock band named "Bluesmobile". In this band I play bass and am the band leader. This band is made up of some of best musicians in the Annapolis Valley and features a full rhythm section as well as a 6 piece horn section, and 4 vocalists. 

I look forward to continuing teaching and playing, as I love what I do, and do what I love, music!
