Gabriel W

Gabriel W

Instruments:

Gabriel is a guitar player, musician, composer, producer and educator who has been teaching music for over 15 years. He has an undergraduate degree in music composition and theory, a Masters degree Jazz Studies with an emphasis in Guitar Performance, a Masters in Musicology, and he was a Doctoral Candidate in Musicology/ Ethnomusicology/ Jazz Studies at the University of Southern California. Gabriel is originally from Maryland, in the Washington, D.C. suburbs and began his musical explorations on the piano as a child, before teaching himself guitar as a teenager. While attending Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA, Gabriel began formal lessons in jazz guitar with Tom Kozic (a student of Joe Pass, Howard Roberts, Tal Farlow, and Kenny Burrell) and Dr. Theodore Conner, as well as classical music theory and composition with Douglas Ovens. During his education, Gabriel was a member of several jazz improvisational groups, a big band orchestra, and he also played in the pit orchestra for musical  productions. After graduating cum laude with a degree in Music, Gabriel made his way to Chicago to work on a Masters in Jazz Studies at DePaul University, studying with Bob Palmieri (a student of John Scofield), trumpeter Dr. Robert Lark, and saxophonist Peter Ballin. While at DePaul he continued to play and record in several jazz combos and big bands, while also finding the time to jam at some of the great blues bars in the city.  Leaving Chicago behind in 2003, Gabriel traveled to Los Angeles to pursue his Doctorate in Musicology at the University of Southern California, where he studied Indian classical music, Jazz History, and 20th century Western art music, receiving a Masters in Musicology along the way and becoming a Doctoral Candidate. As part of his coursework, he continued his guitar studies with David Becker and Tim Kobza, while also sitting in on master classes with Joe Diorio, Sid Jacobs, Pat Martino, Steve Trovato, and Pat Metheny. For his Ethnomusicology studies, Gabriel learned to play the tabla, a set of hand drums from India. He learned even more about Indian culture and music while abroad in India for 6 months in the fall/winter of 2006/2007, researching for his dissertation. Gabriel's fascination with Indian music has influenced not only his compositional writing and improvisational style, but also his teaching approach. In 2010, Gabriel decided to leave his academic studies to pursue his performance and teaching career full time, which has led to opportunities to perform and record throughout the world with several bands and artists, as well as teach some well known professional players. Throughout his career, Gabriel has toured throughout the US and World, sharing the stage with several national and international acts, including Quactus, Naked Eyes, Joan Jett and the Blackhearts, Collective Soul, Violent Femmes, Billy Squire, Wang Chung, A Flock of Seagulls, John Popper (Blues Traveler), Leo Nocentelli (The Meters), Marc Ford (Black Crowes), Stephen Perkins (Jane's Addiction), Nels Cline (Wilco), Kris Myers (Umphrey's McGee), Moonalice (w/ members of Phil Lesh and Friends, Hot Tuna, Bruce Hornsby, and Jefferson Starship), EOTO (w/ members of String Cheese Incident), Melvin Seals and the Jerry Garcia Band, Particle, The Maykers (w/ members of the Jerry Garcia Band), Bobby Vega (Sly and the Family Stone), CR Gruver (Polytoxic/Outformation), Willie Waldman, The New Mastersounds, The Heavy Pets, Cubensis, Jamie Janover, Leon Mobley, Al Howard & the K23 Orchestra, Erasure, Berlin, Men Without Hats, Howard Jones, Andy Bell, When in Rome, Animotion, The Romantics, and Sweet. Some of his favorite guitar players include: Stevie Ray Vaughan, Scott Henderson, Jimmy Herring, Eric Clapton, Eddie Van Halen, Jimi Hendrix, B.B. King, Albert King, Freddie King, Buddy Guy, Trey Anastasio, Carlos Santana, Jerry Garcia, Al Di Meola, Pat Martino, Joe Pass, Grant Green, Mike Stern, John Scofield, Robben Ford, Joe Bonamassa, Joe Satriani, Steve Vai, John Petrucci, Steve Morse, Marty Friedman, Jason Becker, Yngwie Malmsteem, Rusty Cooley, Guthrie Govan and many more. Gabriel specializes in all styles, including rock, jazz, funk, blues, classic rock, metal, pop, latin and acoustic. He is a very patient teacher and has a lot of information to share.

I have learned from some of the best teachers in and around Los Angeles, having studied for 4+ years in the early 1990s.  I love to hear good vocals.  It is heaven.  I love the pure, clean and raw sound.  I will help you get there and stay there.

I am energetic and passionate, but personable; I love meeting new people and I love making music with them even more. As a recent graduate from Berklee College of Music with a degree in Music Ed and Vocal Performance, I am so excited to share all I have learned and experienced with the musicians of today and tomorrow. I have always been a teacher at heart, as well as a hard worker--when I set my mind to something I go after it and I find a way to get it. It is this same attitude that I encourage in my students, especially with their musical futures.

I have been teaching Trombone and Bass to students of all ages for over 15 years and still love giving students the tools and technique to progress and achieve their goals as musicians. Seeing the moment it "clicks" for a student and watching them improve as players and the change that makes in their own image and self confidence is one of the most satisfying aspects of teaching music. My professional career has taken me around the world and allowed me to do and see things I never would have dreamed. If I can give aspiring musicians the ability to achieve what I have achieved, or just increase someone's ability to play and enjoy music, then my time is well spent.

I am a dedicated, hard working musician who is here to pass on all the knowledge I have to my students, in order to help them become the best they can be, regardless of what their musical tastes are! I have a degree in Jazz Performance from CSU Northidge, where I had the wonderful opportunity to study and perform with some of the world's finest musicians. I began drums at a young age, and began taking them seriously in highschool. I know what it likes to be new at something, as I am constantly challenging myself to new things. Being a musician who never stops learning, I feel I can relate to students very well and help them be successful and learn lots about playing drums (and have fun doing it, of course!). I have a private studio with 2 professional level drumsets, as well as all the equipment necessary to make your learning experience the best it can be.

    Review by Richardpoplawski

    I feel she is a very professional teacher and I have already recommended your company and her to my friends who have children that play musical instruments. My 8 year old son has never been so enthusiastic to play his violin. His skills have improved almost exponentially since we have began lessons with Lauren. Your company has exceeded my expectations and I am very happy to have found it online.

    Laura is the kind of teacher you wish you had in all your studies: gracious, easy-going, light-hearted, yet behind the easy going exterior is an excellent musical mind with everything at her fingertips. I've had about 5 teachers in my life who count as really influential people, and Laura easily fits that category. She lets you be yourself so that you are fully present rather than old-school doctrinaire style, what I call "stiff as a German, sig-heil" teachers. She's the polar opposite. Brava, Laura! Thank you so much!

    Having taken 6 years of piano lessons myself when I was young, I am very happy with Osmond teaching my daughter. He is very personable and helping her to enjoy piano. My daughter loves the fun songs she gets to play and I really appreciate how he is integrating even in the first month fingering, chords, beats, and hearing the music. She's getting a very well rounded training and she's loving it!

    Erin has been a wonderful voice/piano teacher for our 7 year old daughter. She is talented, patient, and has a wonderful demeanor. She has been consistent with her teaching in piano and voice. She keeps record of where the students leave off so that they know what to expect the following week. I would definitely recommend Erin to anyone looking for a skilled piano/voice teacher.

    She is the most amazing teacher ever. She is not only w great teacher but she's so fun to work with. She has taught me so many things in such little amount of time things I didn't even know I could do. I recommend Andrea to everyone. She is an amazing singer and cares a lot about her students. She's the best!!

    She is amazing! My daughter, Isabella (7 yrs) is totally engaged in the lesson. Lilly's definitely has a gift with teaching young children!!! A great talent of hers is making the content interesting, current to today's music and most of all fun! She has a knack for taking the material and translating it in a way that is relatable to Isabella. My daughter really enjoys her lesson's and has moved along rather quickly with the material. Thanks Lilly!

    Omar is a great teacher as he provides expert instruction AND the right amount of encouragement. He is a professional musician on several instruments, yet he is patient with beginners! He also has gone out of his way to purchase an appropriate book for me, strings to re-string the cello, and extra attention to tuning. I appreciate how he explains and demonstrates exactly what a beginning cello student needs to know.

    Danette is a delightful instructor. She always brings a wealth of knowledge, excitement, and enthusiasm to piano lessons with my daughter. She is not only skilled at piano, but she has a wonderful voice quality that she uses to help convey certain techniques and to highlight various points where she intends to draw the students attention.

    Darrell is A-Maz-Ing! He demands results from his students and therefore results come quickly. The time he spends teaching is intense and packed with great instruction. He is a tough teacher but offers lots of valuable instruction that is applicable for music as well as life in general. I highly recommend Darrell if you are ready for results!

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.

Ok

Are you sure that's your only availability? The more availability you easier it will be to arrange a teacher for you.
