Zemp is on the faculty of the College of Charleston, where he teaches piano and coaches voice students. He also maintains an independent studio. His students have won many state and regional competitions and awards. Having served in numerous capacities with the South Carolina Music Teachers Association, including president and vice president for conferences, he received the association’s Distinguished Service Award in 2006. A graduate of the Peabody Conservatory of Music, Zemp made his New York debut at Carnegie Recital Hall in 1984.
