Gabriel is grateful to his former teachers who have put him through a wide range of teaching methods from his formative years.  He developed a firm foundation with Chinese pedagogue Zhang Zhen Shan, and traces his musical lineage back to both Russian schools of David Oistrakh and Yuri Yankelevich with his teachers Alexander Souptel and Victor Danchenko. It is now his passion to pass on this knowledge and tradition to the next generation of violinists. 

Besides teaching at the Yong Siew Toh Conservatory of Music and the School of the Arts, Gabriel offers private violin lessons in Singapore and online lessons to international students. He also coaches the violin sections of the Tanjong Katong Girls School String Ensemble, ACS (Independent) IB Orchestra, ACS (International) String Orchestra, and has given masterclasses in Singapore, Malaysia and Myanmar.

His teaching places an emphasis on developing a ear for harmony while building a solid foundation for mastery of the violin through a thoughtfully curated progression of etudes, concerti, showpieces and sonatas. 

Gabriel’s teaching studio is located at Holland Village, within 5 mins walk from both Holland Village and Buona Vista MRT stations.
