“You’re a great music educator and an impressive pianist. I’m glad I can continue my music journey and education with you. Thank you.” – Charles G.
“I have been studying jazz piano with Gabriel for over a year now. He has the uncanny ability to zero in on just what I need to work on and will give me drills and exercises I need to bring that up to speed. It can be a line or a lick to learn in all keys with appropriate comping. Or it can be a Bach invention to develop technique and the independence of the hands. I always have come away from a lesson with something that I can apply at my next performance or gig. That is very satisfying and a great way to learn. No matter what I bring in to the lesson, he has something to add that leads to improvement. ” – Henry S.
