Had a wonderful class with Gerson, he is not only a very skilled singer and musician but also a patient and easy going instructor, he is very specific in what he wants from you as a student and the steps to take in order to achieve your goals. Gerson has also a great repertoire in Latin American styles and will push you enough to learn different genres!

Gerson is so knowledgeable & talented & he teaches with so much patience & friendliness. I feel so comfortable learning from him as he really dissects what he teaches & focuses a lot on precision & repetition. Gerson really lets you speak your mind when you express what you’d like to work on & really curates the lesson according to your needs. I have so much fun learning with him, I honestly never realise where time goes. I’m extremely happy with my experience with him & would definitely recommend him! :)

Gerson is extremely knowledgable and incredibly kind: the perfect blend of traits that you would want your teacher to have. Be ready to study, because Gerson will help you accomplish all of your goals as long as you are willing to put in the time yourself. I would study Viola, Violin, Piano, and Voice with him (and would strongly consider taking dance classes as well).
