Mr. Zoltowski was one of my favorite teachers at Bay Academy. He was responsible for the Winds and Strings talents when I was a student. He is very willing to help you succeed and improve with your musical skills as long as you are willing to learn. My love for the Baritone Horn was cultivated by him. Outside of the classroom, he is a very cool guy who is willing to mentor you with his wealth of knowledge. A must have teacher.

Oh my god!!!! I had this man in the 5th grade for music at St. John the Evangelist grammar school in Park Slope back in 1979!!!!!! Wow!! He was the brand new music teacher back then, and he had no classroom managment skills, but it was obvious he loved music, and I really enjoyed my class' occasional music lessons. I remember him as very tall, with spectacles, and that one day he ran across the auditorium to pull apart two fistfighting 8th graders with ease. He's still alive! He was fun!

I agree with most other ppl. He is the best teacher in the Bay Academy. He doesn't make you feel nervous or anything.Just as long you do what's right, he will give you an exquisite grade and you will learn a lot of music stuff from him. He inspired me to go deeper in music and become advanced in playing the violin. He's extremely nice too, he let's his students practice in his room so they can play better when they are with the ensemble. You ROCK, Mr.Z! Luv ya! I am violinist from ur '06 7th grd. orchestra
