Gabrielle Tee, piano and guitar instructor, and Asheville Music School’s Program Director, has a passion for creating and teaching music. She started piano lessons at age 6, and began composing original songs at age 10. While her peers were playing dress-up, she was playing ‘piano teacher,’ and would recruit any willing family member and friends to be her students. She officially began teaching piano lessons through her church at age 16, ran her own independent music studio for 5 years in Kansas City, and has taught at Asheville Music School since 2010. She typically sees 40 students a week, ages 6 to 60, all with unique interests and goals.

In the vibrant jazz scene of Kansas City, she honed her jazz arrangement and composition skills, and has recorded several albums, including two full length solo projects, “Try Me” and “Find My Way.” She relocated to Asheville in 2010 to be closer to her family, and in 2016, Gabrielle completed here BFA in Jazz and Contemporary Music at UNC Asheville. Throughout all these experiences, she strives to inspire her students by including them in recordings, performances, presentations, and college visit days.
