Overview

We are all perfectly designed for singing. We are also unique individuals with different learning styles, and for this reason, my lessons have been designed to be different for every student. It’s all about creating CONSTRUCTIVE response to desire and learning accurate information about our instrument. By applying Alexander's technique principles, we’ll work towards improving coordination, technique, and most importantly, self-fluency.

My singing experience started at a very early age, recording for radio, TV, and performing live with top artists, in and out of my home country, Ecuador. I graduated as a vocal performance major from the Los Angeles College of Music, and since I moved to LA, I've had the opportunity to work as a session singer with notable artists such as Engelbert Humperdink, Tierney Sutton, and multi Grammy award winning producer Gustavo Borner. I've written and performed songs for featured films such as "I Remember You" and "The Belko Experiment”.

I strongly believe we come to evolve in the artistry of performing when we care about the PROCESS and when we experience learning as what it is: an amazing and fun opportunity to find the greatness in ourselves.

I play drums in a band that had been asking me to share some of the background vocal duties and so I decided to get some help and was lucky to find Gaby. She was a HUGE help in getting me ready to tackle what I thought was a rather daunting task on the mic and helped me get much better at harmonies as well as solidifying my pitch while singing with lots of other stuff going on during our shows. Not only is she a great teacher, but she has a great sense of humor and is a compassionate person, which also helps when you're a bit self-conscious about getting your singing chops together:)

Excellent teacher. Different approach, which adjusts more to your needs and goals rather than just follow the traditional methods. Strongly recommend her as a teacher if you want to see real improvement!

Las clases con Gaby are really awesome! 😊 Con ella he descubierto que puedo cantar de una manera fácil, cómoda, y sobretodo con mi propia voz, con mi propio sonido, y que lo disfrute y me guste! Realmente es gratificante, porque siempre queremos parecernos a nuestras influencias musicales pero las clases con Gaby me han ayudado a expresar lo que realmente quiero y soy. Recomiendo mucho tomar esta clase! Además que son súper divertidas! I totally recommend taking lessons with her!!!

I took some voice lessons from Gabriela recently and was impressed with how quickly she assessed my abilities. She helped me tremendously with capitalizing on my strengths and improving my weaknesses. As an instructor at UCLA, I especially appreciate someone who has the skill to teach effectively. Highly recommend!

Gabriela was great!! I started taking some vocal lessons with her and ended up hiring her as a studio singer.

I am a film composer and producer based in Los Angeles, CA and after hearing her voice, I realized that we were going to work together on many projects... which we did!

She is a very professional and versatile singer. She can sing in English, Spanish and Portuguese and she is really good at helping you finding your own voice.

She co-wrote and performed the song "All Along" which was the end credit song for the feature film "I Remember You" by Claudia Sparrow. (currently on iTunes and Amazon Video on Demand).

You can find many other examples of her exceptional talent on Youtube and other sites.

I highly recommend Gabriela!
