Overview

I am a professional vocalist and composer, with a BFA and BMus in Jazz Performance, and over 10 years of performance and recording experience internationally, including appearances at Carnegie Hall and Lincoln Center with NY's premiere a cappella ensemble Khorikos, and the Knitting Factory with Brooklyn-based indie band RVBY MY DEAR; as well as commercial voiceover work for major brands. I specialize in teaching Jazz, Pop/Contemporary, Broadway and Choral singing, songwriting, theory, ear training and arranging, as well as Beginner – Intermediate Piano.
All ages and levels are welcome - including college and high school students preparing for auditions! Whether you’re looking to take your music to the next level professionally, or want to learn just for fun, lessons are tailored to your ability and musical interests. I don't believe in a one-size-fits-all approach to music, and I encourage and guide my students to find what it is about their voice that makes them unique.

· Singing · In home I am taking beginner singing classes with Gabbi and I highly recommend her.
She is nice, fun, organized and patient. But most importantly, after taking 5 lessons with Gabbi I already feel like I am improving.
We typically start a class with warm up exercices and then work on a song. I am french and not always confortable with singing in English, that's why I appreciated when Gabbi suggested we could start with a song in French, which made things easier for me.
