      Teaching Philosophy: My goal is to get you playing whatever you're excited about as soon as possible, as well as getting you to use your ear to identify and replicate what you're hearing onto your instrument, and there are a lot of different ways we can achieve that! Everyone learns differently, so feel free to ask questions and be open! All of your playing will add up over time, and as long as it's in the direction of your goals you will get there!

      Get to know Gilbert

      With a dad who was a touring guitarist in the 70's-90's and a mom who took me to every major rock concert 

      when I was growing up, it was no surprise that music became a part of my identity and something I wanted to

      share with people. My most recent professional activity before joining the Music & Arts team was co-owning 

      a studio with a healthy student base ranging from ages 4 to 70+ teaching a variety of musical styles in Guitar,

      Drumset, Bass, Marching Percussion, Songwriting, and Theory, as well as helping some students prepare for

      auditions for other music programs, church bands or performances of their own!

      My biggest musical accomplishment was performing in Carnegie Hall in NYC as a percussionist, by

      coincidence that performance landed on my 18th birthday! My academic music programs allowed me to

      have a variety of experiences and performances with drumlines, jazz bands, musicals, full orchestras, and

      other ensembles. My focus in recent years has been songwriting and producing my own music, I love just

      about any genre but I always find myself going back to Rock, Prog, Punk, old school Hip Hop, Jazz, Metal, and

      scores from Films, TV, and Videogames. 

       I hope to meet you soon!    \m/
