Over the past few years I have had the opportunity to teach a wide variety of students from child and adult beginners to undergraduate students majoring in music.
After years of trying to perfect the art of playing and teaching saxophone, I have learned that playing an instrument is a never-ending process.
My main goal as a teacher is to guide my students in this process. As a musician I am just in a different stage of this process than my students.
Learning technique is fundamental so that the student can execute the music to their best ability. But technique itself is just a set of tools the student acquires to express through their instrument. The more tools they have, the easier it becomes to communicate with an audience.
LEVELS AND TOPICS
Lessons with Gabriel are creative with criteria, and above all personalized and very functional to one's needs.
Gabriel generates the confidence that what he teaches is the best way to overcome the challenges that are presented during lessons.
For me it has been the best way to fill in the gaps that I have as a saxophonist – accompanied by a great professional.
