About Gabriel H.

My name is Gabriel. I have been playing and teaching for over 35 years both piano and Voice, Theater, Songwriting, Film, Stage Acting and so much more. As a Music Major and Christian Education major at Johnson Bible College.

As a Student you will find that learning to play and sing can be fun and easy. I always make my lessons enjoyable and I add humor, games and other instruments to enhance your learning experience.

I am both a musician and song writer. I have a great time teaching and work great with both Children and adults. I love it when working with people and that "Light" comes on when they realize "I really learned something." I live for those moments.

I have worked with students of all levels. I even work with children with special needs. So no matter what you would like to do with your music, play for enjoyment, compose music, sing, for church or professionally I can help you get there.

*** Lesson Details ***
The lessons I teach are fun and educational. No matter who you are I am able to teach you.
I do not teach traditional piano. Why? Because most people are unable to play this style due to issues with eye hand coordination. The Method I teach "Chord Percussion Style" teaches a strong foundation in piano basics backed by a Strong Music Theory base. I have yet to find anyone who has not been able to learn with this method.
For voice I teach natural voice as opposed to Head Voice. This allows the student to learn to sing in a solo or group setting. You will be amazed at the difference a few adjustments can make in your voice. So as you continue your lessons with us you will see constant improvement.
On top of Voice and Piano I can help you learn to write your own music. Using the theory that you use you will learn to start to piece music together.
Guitar lessons start with Rhythm Guitar and then move into solos, scales, Barre chords, "Shredding" and more.
Drums we start with basic drumming techniques and move into rock, Latin and more beats and fills.
Theater and performance classes include audition prep, career path and we help you set up a portfolio including a resume and headshots for any auditions.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Keyboard - Roland Weighted Keys
Digital Recording

*** Specialties ***
I teach Chord Percussion Style as well as Notation strong piano fundamentals and mixed with in-depth Music Theory and percussion technique. Super Fun for all ages!

Instructor was very knowledgeable and friendly. It helps to have a song you want to sing and bring it to the first lesson.

What can I say about Gabriel as I am sure there are no words to say how awesome he is.Gabriel is my first piano teacher I have had since childhood piano lessons.
I was very nervous to try to play in front of him or anyone. Gabriel is very kind and gentile in his instructions. His method of teaching brought out of me what I thouht I had long forgotten.
Gabriel works well with adults and children as well.

He has been a great instructor for my 4 year old son, my son loves him to death. He makes the lessons fun and interesting as well as adjusts to my sons needs. I would highly recommend him to parents wanting their children to take any kind of music lessons.

Gabe was a wonderful instructor for our 15 year old son who has Aspergers. He was patient and kind and willing to work with our son's taste in music as well as his anxieties. Although our son was not able to continue lessons, we still believe we could not have asked for a more perfect instructor.

Gabriel is doing a wonderful job teaching our daughter to sing in her voice and not to mimic other popular artists. We opted for the hour lesson and are pleased the improvement we have witnessed in a few short months. Highly recommend Gabriel!

Gabriel is very good!

After my first lesson, I left feeling more confident about my abilities. He was able to point out what has been holding me back from using my full voice potential and I have noticed a very significant improvement since day one. Taking lessons with Gabriel is something I look forward too every week. He is a very good instructor!!! I'm constantly learning new skills and many ways to improve in this area, what can I say... I love it!

Great first session

Gabriel was great! The introduction session was the best we have ever had, not our 1st time at this. I was impressed w/ how he coved the basics experience, warm ups, ability to carry a note & what her/our goal was. Also, I was very impressed by his concern for my daughter to discover her own abilities / capabilities. He was genuine & told us what is necessary to improve to a higher level, not always easy, but he is very experienced & she is excited to be his student!
In a word - Gabriel is SUPER!

Outstanding Teacher

Gabriel has helped my daughter understand the extremely complicated ways of playing the piano. It has been my girl's dream to play the piano, and I am confident that with his help she will be able to live that dream.
