About this pro

SINGING LESSONS:
Study with an award winning Broadway & National Tour credited singer! With over 15 years of performing and teaching experience, and having studied with the best in the industry (including 2-time Academy Award winning composer A.R. Rahman and Sir Andrew Lloyd Webber), I will provide you with a wealth of information, and the tools you need, to bring your singing voice to the next level, in a fun and relaxing environment.

ACCENT REDUCTION LESSONS:
I have developed a proven, groundbreaking, unique, fun and interactive approach to reduce, and in some cases eliminate the foreign accent completely. How you ask? I have always found it fascinating when my foreign students would be able to sing a standard American song with NO accent. Somehow, singing completely eliminated their accent. Since that discovery, I was determined to find out how. Based on my research, I have created a very easy to understand method that can dramatically reduce the foreign accent.
Take the first step to propel your career to the next level!

    Gabriel is an incredible accent teacher. He has his own technique and all I can say is that it REALLY works. I tried other accent coachs before him and always felt some part of the work wasn't fully done. I felt like they were only showing me what I should be doing. That is not the case with Gabriel. He is detail oriented he has a superman ear, he is very good at explaining what is the mistake you are making and how you can correct it, giving precise exercises and techniques to fix it. I have people asking me if I moved to the States when I was 5 when in reality I moved here less than a year ago :) Can't beat that! A part from his professionalism, he is kind, funny, flexible. I totally recommend him!

    I have taken accent reduction with a few teachers and Gabriel is by far the best accent reduction teacher I have had. His technique is very practical and based on principles of how singing is taught. It has been very effective for me. It also helps that he is a very friendly and nice person in addition to being an inspiring actor, singer and performer.

    I was referred to Gabrielle by my acting coach, due to my accent holding me back in my auditions. I have to say he is one of the best voice coaches in Los Angeles with out a doubt. Gabrielle makes it fun, and makes it accessible to all. Give this guy a call, and you won't be disappointed with the results. I Highly recommend this great teacher!

    I've been working with Gabriel on reducing my accent, and my progress over the past month has been terrific! Gabriel's unique methodology is straightforward and effective. He's also very encouraging, patient, and upbeat. Thanks to Gabriel, I was able to understand (and *hear*) the mistakes I've been making for many years (I've been in the US for over 10 years) and to finally get to fixing them. My friends and colleagues have been asking fewer "What did you say?" questions and as I went to networking functions, I was not asked where I was from, which was a sign to me that people did not hear my Eastern European accent. I'll continue working with Gabriel until I sound like those broadcast TV reporters :-), and I am sure that under his guidance I'll be able to do that. Thanks, Gabriel, you are awesome!
