Gaby began piano lessons at the young age of 4. She then went on to study voice and guitar at the age of 12 at the Music Place. Since then, she has discovered a passion for the art of singing and is currently working towards a B.M. in Vocal Performance at San Jose State University. She studies with the excellent Sandra Bengochea as a coloratura soprano.
She is a seasoned vocalist, having performed in both operas with San Jose State University and musicals around the Bay Area. She also sings soprano in the San Jose State University Concert Choir, and had the privilege of performing with them in Carnegie Hall in April 2015. Experienced with liturgical music since elementary school, Gaby also works as a cantor at St. Leo the Great. Since then she has also taught private voice lessons.
Gaby is passionate about the importance of music education, and thrilled to be a part of the Music Place community!
Her teaching style is thoroughly focusing on giving beginner students a strong foundation for their instruments. While she strives for as much perfection as possible, she always aims to pace her teaching as slowly as the student needs in order for them to fully understand. She's also very fun and entertaining.

I tell everyone who will listen about the amazing introduction to music that our daughter is getting with the Music Place. People are always amazed when a 3-year old explains that she played an oboe last week and is going to play a piccolo next week! Most importantly, our daughter can't wait for music class & asks to go every day. -- The Pace Family
