Background

- What kind of experience do you have?

15 years of singing teaching experience: private vocal coach as well a teacher at music schools across The Netherlands (i.e.Dordtse Muziekschool) and the UK.
4 years of foreign languages teaching experience.

- Do you have an up-to-date DBS (Disclosure & Barring Service, formerly CRB) Certificate?

I have a current DBS check.

- Where and with whom did you train?

I trained mainly in The Netherlands and Brazil. More info on my website (concealed information)

- Tell me about some of your current students.

I want to tell you a bit about one of my students: a very shy girl who loves music, loves singing and playing instruments. She has a great interest in music, in composition, in sound engineering. I love to teach her because she treats it very seriously. Her biggest challenge is to get over her fears, to open up her voice, to show her personality on stage, in other words, to perform. So our singing lessons are not just about the technical part. We talk a lot about the psychological aspects of performing. The voice is the most vulnerable of all instruments, because it is a person. It is you! And any moods, worries, fears, excitement, personality, sadness, happiness will always be reflected in it. It's like a mirror of your soul. It is very difficult to show it all to a public through singing or any other kind of public performance. So, I challenge my student a lot giving her time, space and distance, for her to digest the challenge and to go for it. I know how important it is for her to, in the first place, gain more self-confidence, because what will follow is her voice opening up and coming out in a stronger, more beautiful and truthful, authentic and genuine form. Now, after 4 months of working with her we both can finally see and feel the progress she is making in both: singing itself and becoming a stronger performer.

Gabriela has improved my performance almost 100%. My voice is rebuilt and even my songs are taken into account. Her critics about my songs have increased depth and melody as well as vocal performance. I will keep asking her for her services!

By working with Gabi for several years at the "Dordtse Muziekschool" (Holland), we clearly noticed how her pedagogical skills, combined with her experiences as a professional vocalist, enabled her to become one of our best teachers. She inspires her students with her musical knowledge and positive and enthusiastic attitude. Her teaching methods give them the opportunity to have vocal classes at the highest level. She's a very kind and warm person whom I'd highly recommend as your vocal teacher.
