I love my lessons with Gizem. She is one of the best communicators I?ve ever worked with. She makes everything clear and understandable and always is able to answer questions I have clearly where I?m able to commit the information to memory. She?s extremely detail oriented as well. Every lesson, we listen to the music I?ve written and then we pick it apart, finding areas where it can be improved. It is always presented in a helpful way where she makes me feel like I?ve done a good job already but that she knows I can even do better. She suggests changes and I always take them. She clearly knows what she?s talking about and backs it up every lesson. So glad I found her. I?ve never been so excited to write music!

she has helped me to accomplish a better understanding of transposing music - she was patient, kind, competent, well spoken, and knows her craft and how to teach it

My kids have been working with Gigi over six months now. She helped my younger child establish a stronger foundation in piano and music theory. She also helped my high school daughter become a more versatile piano player through learning jazz pieces.?They?both really enjoyed having lessons with Gigi.?Her instructions are very easy to follow along, and she makes the lessons very engaging and informative. She is very patient with providing the necessary support and pacing the lesson to maximize her students? learning and improvement. I highly recommend Gigi.

Gigi worked with my high school daughter, who wanted to try singing lessons. This was an online lesson. Per my daughter, "She was patient and nice but also helpful and informative. It feels like she really wants to help you improve"

Gigi is super knowledgeable and does a great job finding what the issues are with the piano playing. She is super sweet and patient while learning something new!

I've practiced with Gizem over the past month or so. She is very skilled, both as a singer and teacher. She is very attentive and clearly articulates how to improve in a way that is comfortable and fun. I've loved singing and wanted a private vocal coach for a long time but always thought it's too expensive. But with the quality level she provides, her class is worth it.

Thank you for the timely and thorough help on our Logic Pro X project! Jennifer learned a lot from the hour with you. We hope to get your help again in the future when Jennifer encounters other challenges.

Gigi gave me a thorough overview of the harmonic language of jazz/pop, and also helped me with my compositions. She is very knowledgable and explains things clearly and with a lot of patience too. I benefited tremendously from her lessons, and highly recommend.

My girls have been working with Gigi for several months now. They have lessons twice a week. Once a week they learn music theory and once a week they learn music production/pro tools. We had made a home studio so my girls could start recording their own music, right before corona hit. These lessons were an amazing entrance into learning what they need to and the bright moment in this difficult time (they are twins and seniors who missed the whole end of their high school experience). They are so enjoying and gaining tremendously and plan to continue well after they can get out and about. Gigi is an amazing, teacher!!!

If you are looking to have have a complete comprehension of music, GiGi is the instructor for you. Highly trained and talented. 5 stars!!! It was obvious from the first lesson that GiGi fully understands music. I wanted an advanced level of training in composition and searched for an instructor who could meet those needs. I looked for and instructor with formal training and advanced degrees. GiGi met all my expectations and more.

Gigi was great in helping me conceptualize the broad strokes of my Logic project (a film score) as well as the technical detail. I can highly recommend her and will book more lessons with her.
- Alessandro R. from New York, NY
Gigi is more than a great teacher--she is a versatile musician and lovely human being. You will learn a great deal not only about technique but also about the composer's background. Absolutely unique teacher. Very inspiring and mind changing. Opened a new world for us and many others. She clearly also has a passion for teaching since she takes great pleasure in helping students discover and develop their full potential. I highly recommend Gigi, and I'm looking forward to continuing my son's music education with her.
