My name is Gabriel. I have been playing and teaching for over 25 years both piano and Voice. As a Music Major and Christian Education major at Johnson Bible College I not only learned the skills needed to be a musician but also how to teach what I had learned. 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. *** Studio Equipment *** Keyboard - Roland Weighted Keys Amplifier Bongos Guitar *** Specialties *** I teach Chord Percussion Style which is based on the use of chords and strong piano fundamentals and mixed with in-depth Music Theory and percussion technique. Super Fun for all ages!
