About Gabriel C.

From 4th to 12 grade I studied piano under Dr. Anne Karanikolaou. I studied music theory, rhythm, technique, composition, and performance at Saddleback College. My core qualifications are extended piano techniques, lesson plan development, performance assessments, putting on bi-annual recitals, musicianship skills, technology integration, individualized lesson plans, musical theory, and creative teaching skills. 2005 to present Owner/teacher at "Piano Matters". My professional experience includes solo performances in various venues including restaurants, wine bars, cafes, private events, wedding and reception music. Seasonal performances at the University Of Irvine Alumni group "The Inside Edge”. The first band I created was a 4 piece consisting of drums, 3 part vocals, bass, and two keyboardists which was picked up by the surf/skate/snowboard/apparel company "Volcom" and put on their record label. I also toured the Hawaiian Islands for over a decade with big name bands including Humble Soul, Jus Goodie, J Boog, The Heartical Crew, Remedy, The Turnstyles, Sheriff Brown, and backing numerous traveling artists from abroad. Recently I've won multiple songwriting challenges in different groups on social media. I currently perform with various local artists including JamKwest, Lyons Den, Smoothie J, Johnny Love, Andrew Corradini, Braddah Adrian, Jah Mex, and Anesha Rose.

My first lesson was good. He has a very traditional approach but fun delivery. Looking forward to more lessons.

Gabriel has been teaching my son Riser (age 7 now) for over 2 years now. We feel so blessed! My son progressed so quickly. Gabriel is patient, engaging and has a gift for helping kids grow their piano skills week by week. I love that he's also created "recitals" for his students to play for people! We recently switched from in home lessons to doing them through FaceTime, and it's almost like having Gabe in our home with us.
