I have been a professional performing musician and music educator for over 10 years. I have been playing guitar since I was 8 years old, and have played in almost any style and situation you can think of. I’m a huge believer in the power of music. There are so many great reasons to want to learn to play, or improve your playing, and I’d love to help you with whatever yours is! I will custom tailor your lessons to enjoyably reach your goals (and will help you figure out what those goals are if need be), while developing a strong foundation in music theory and proper technique. I can't wait to start helping you on your journey!

About Gabriel V.

Hey, my name is Gabriel and I've been playing music most of my life, and teaching for well over 10 years. There are so many benefits to learning and playing music, and I am extremely passionate about sharing my love and knowledge of music with others. Besides teaching both private lessons and in classrooms, I have worked as a live sound engineer, recording engineer, producer/arranger, performing guitarist, bassist, and background singer in various genres in several countries, in studios and stages big and small. I have a bachelors degree in music, and experience in jazz, classical, rock, r&b, broadway, pop, metal, country, reggae, soca, calypso, soul, funk and many other genres. I can't wait to develop a personalized curriculum just for you.

Had lessons with Gabe for many years. I continually use things I learned during our lessons and definitely feel my love of playing guitar was solidified while he was my teacher! Have play nearly every day since then (almost 9 years ago?) I can still play Out of Nowhere from memory and hold my guitar differently/sit differently/pick differently because of him. Recording an album now and have him to thank for my skillzzzz :)
