· Accent Reduction · Online I've been working with Gabriel on reducing my accent, and my progress over the past month has been terrific! Gabriel's unique methodology is straightforward and effective. He's also very encouraging, patient, and upbeat. Thanks to Gabriel, I was able to understand (and *hear*) the mistakes I've been making for many years (I've been in the US for over 10 years) and to finally get to fixing them. My friends and colleagues have been asking fewer "What did you say?" questions and as I went to networking functions, I was not asked where I was from, which was a sign to me that people did not hear my Eastern European accent. I'll continue working with Gabriel until I sound like those broadcast TV reporters :-), and I am sure that under his guidance I'll be able to do that. Thanks, Gabriel, you are awesome!

· Accent Reduction · In studio I was referred to Gabrielle by my acting coach, due to my accent holding me back in my auditions. I have to say he is one of the best voice coaches in Los Angeles with out a doubt. Gabrielle makes it fun, and makes it accessible to all. Give this guy a call, and you won't be disappointed with the results. I Highly recommend this great teacher!

· Accent Reduction · In home Gabriel is a fantastic teacher. Being a singer and an actor he has the ability to help you hit the correct sounds using simple exercises that can be later practiced at home.

In few lessons that we had he helped me a lot. He is patient, encouraging and provides a comfortable environment during lessons. He is able to guide you and gives a strong foundation to learn the American Accent.

Highly recommend!

· Accent Reduction · Online I have taken accent reduction with a few teachers and Gabriel is by far the best accent reduction teacher I have had. His technique is very practical and based on principles of how singing is taught. It has been very effective for me. It also helps that he is a very friendly and nice person in addition to being an inspiring actor, singer and performer.
