Congratulations to Gabriel DeShay!! He was recently accepted into Berkley School of Music!!
We are all proud of Gabriel. He has been my student for the past 4 years and I’ve enjoyed watching him grow. His parents have also been instrumental in his success. Behind every great musician, in addition to talent & drive, is the support from those they love.

Attached is a video of Gabriel DeShay performing as a Finalist at the Guitar Center Drum-Off Regionals in Phoenix, AZ October 22, 2013.

Again, good job Gabriel, I will miss having you come in for lessons. I wish you all the best at Berkley!!
