"Gabe Mueller has been working with the Spirit of Northwest High School Band Program for 2 years as a Brass Instructor and has been a part of our Visual Ensemble Instruction.  She was able to walk in the first day and have an immediate impact on our students.  It is quite a sight to see her interact with our band students on the field and in solo and ensemble lessons.  Gabe has made a positive impact on our program."

Masterclass Topics


Brass Builders

In this workshop, Gabe will help unlock great sounds in the brass classroom, focusing on the importance of air and ear.  Students will take a different look at how sound is created on a brass instrument and will learn basic exercises in order to implement new techniques.  Perfect for middle school brass classes of any make-up (low brass class, trombone class, all brass, etc.) and high school brass or low brass sections.

$150 for two consecutive class periods (approx. 45 minutes each)
or one 90 minute masterclass with solo performance


"Making It"

In this masterclass, Gabe will discuss with students the accessibility of music today, creating your own path, and "making it work" to "make it."  We live in a world of innovation - how has this changed the landscape of how music is created and consumed, and how do you as an individual fit in this landscape?  This masterclass is great for high school students and is suitable for either brass students or full band classes.

My son Noah has become progressively more dedicated to learning to play the trombone. I think he sees what value there is to playing well, and Gabe has helped him on his quest. I sat in on nearly a year’s worth of lessons. I am a musician, and have knowledge as to what is good or bad. Gabe is good. Not only has she inspired Noah, she has exposed him to many outside the lesson opportunities, all of which were valuable and interesting to Noah. Gabe is a motivated, innovative, top notch music educator.
