I've been teaching voice for eight years and my students have gone on to study at CalArts, La Guardia, The New School, and more. Lessons focus on technique, rhythmic feel, improvisation skills, repertoire choice, chart-writing, and transcribing solos from the great jazz masters. I have the following tools available: microphones, keyboard, Logic Pro, Spotify for karaoke backing tracks, sheet music, chart-writing software.

Gabbi was great, looking forward to the next lesson.
Arlo
Gabbi has been great with my 8-year-old, really good at keeping him engaged and excited about learning.
Georgina
I made the switch from in-studio to online piano lessons with Gabbi and couldn’t be more impressed with how seamless the transition has been. She has been helping me learn the fundamentals of technique and theory and is very good at creating a challenging yet supportive learning environment. She’s also good at helping me to choose pieces to learn that are within my abilities but still enjoyable to play. My playing has improved a ton in just a few lessons thanks to her guidance. Highly recommend!

Edwin is a fantastic teacher and so patient. I am amazed at how much my son has learned in just a couple lessons.
David S.
Had an excellent initial discussion with my instructor, Edwin, today. It was big picture but at the same time Edwin’s comments & suggestions gave me confidence in his command of the art (engineering, arrangement, composition & structure, and playing techniques), all the things I’m going to need help with to take my musical projects to another level.

Edwin is chill, flexible, and conveys a ton of relevant practice tips every lesson.

"I've been taking French class with Philippe twice a week for the past 2 months. My French comprehension and speaking has improved by leaps and bounds. Enough so that my husband who is a native French speaker has commented weekly in how much he has noticed the improvement in my pronounciation and comprehension (and he is VERY hard to please. He doesn't give out complements easily). Philippe has been the catalyst. I had lessons previously and even been in immersion French programs twice. I had learn so much but due to the pandemic being able to do that again was not available. I became frustrated because i felt like even with weekly lessons with another very good teach, I was slipping backward and not progressing like I felt I could. I found Philippe and i am so very grateful. He is very charming and interesting. He pushes me to do better. He has given be exercises between classes that help me improve understanding and comprehension and during class we do different types of listening and conversation so that I am picking up vocabulary, grammar, listening skills and conversation that is becoming more complex. I highly recommend Philippe if your goal is to speak more fluently and to understand. What a pleasure to be able to turn on French TV and be able to pick up more and more each day. Philippe is create in finding all kinds of tools andi information to keep my attention and to advance my skills"
