Gabriella P.

Columbus, OH

About Gabriella

A graduate from Illinois Wesleyan University, Gabriella has earned her degree in Violin Performance and is currently attending the Ohio State University working towards a Masters in String Pedagogy.
A few notable performances she has participated in is two solo recitals, concerts with the Danville, Lakeview, Wheaton and Illinois Wesleyan Civic Orchestra, and many performances with her quartet, including performances at the Consular Corps. Ball in Chicago. She has developed an advanced repertoire for her instrument and greatly enjoys imparting what she has learned with others.

*** Lesson
Details ***
Each student is expected to attend each lesson scheduled with all materials prepared over the week. Students are expected to practice no less than 5 days each week. The student must be engaged and active in each lesson, music is so exciting! It is highly encouraged to participate in local orchestras and chamber music programs as well as attend concerts available in the area. These events are tremendous learning opportunities!
Although I am not a "strict" teacher, I do adjust my expectations to each student and do expect each student to make progress from lesson to lesson. Within the first few months together, I can assure better posture, a more comfortable playing experience and strong technical foundations. I promise to customize a suitable lesson plan to each student in my studio to ensure they receive the best learning experience possible.

*** Studio Equipment ***
We will meet in Hughes Hall on the OSU campus (1899 College Rd. N) and a stand will be provided.

*** Travel Equipment ***
I would provide music copies along with articles I would have them read and objects to help technique (i.e. a rhythm egg). I would expect the student to have their own instrument and accessories, i.e. shoulder rest, at home stand, rosin, etc.

*** Specialties ***
Along with common course materials students will be likely to work on in school, I like to incorporate a variety of musical styles such as Eastern European and Spanish traditional dances to broaden horizons.

I have learned so much in my short time taking lessons with Gabriella. She is incredibly attentive and great at explaining both theory and technique in a way that is easy to understand and remember. She is really comfortable and easy to work with!

Exceptionally focused, extremely detailed, and a stickler for perfection, are some of the attributes that come to mind when I think of Gabriella.

I was hesitant to move forward with Gabriella when I first discovered her on takelessons.com. Being an adult learner, I was under the impression that the age of the instructor determined their skill-set and ability to teach. Not so! To say I have improved with Gabriella is an understatement. What I learned from her in the 10 months we've worked together has progressed me to a level I could never have achieved with my former instructor.

Gabriella is not intimidated by my age and doesn't let any intonation errors, posture slouching, poor bow-hold, etc., go unsaid. She is very good at constructively pointing out errors without sounding harsh, or critical.

She is wise beyond her years. She is very mature and is truly passionate about the violin.

I am so fortunate to have found her and I look forward to many more successful lessons!

Excellent Instructor

Ella is very knowledgeable, patient, and thorough violin teacher. She is working with my 10 year old who is under the autism spectrum. Ella is very patient and has been doing an excellent job teaching my son how to play at a pace he can handle. My son really likes Ella and her tutoring him has helped him keep up with his school orchestra.

Welcome to my studio, where I will instruct you in your musical and academic endeavors. What sets me apart is that I offer diverse instruction in two different areas. In my music studio, I give lessons in piano, violin, guitar, and composition. In my tutoring center, I teach in multiple disciplines, from arts and sciences to SAT prep.

Accomplishments

As a high school senior, under the tutelage of OSU Professor Emeritus and world-renowned pianist George Haddad, I performed the first movement of Shostakovich'™s Second Piano Concerto with the chamber orchestra.

I performed different self-composed pieces at seven OSU Composers'™ Workshops and won the Audience Favorite Award at the Johnstone Woodwinds Composition Competition in 2012. My Senior Composition Recital was performed on October 25, 2012. It showcased several of my three-movement works: string quartet, clarinet solo, set of classical songs for piano and voice, set of pop songs for piano and voice. Interspersed with these were two solo piano pieces and a duet for piano and violin.

My background makes me a knowledgeable and effective tutor. I was valedictorian at Delaware Hayes High School in 2009 and received OSU'™s Maximus Scholarship based on my ACT and SAT scores.
