Musician Spotlight: Interview with Gabbi Music



1. When and why did you start playing?

My music career started when I was a little girl. I started playing violin when I was 4 years old. I saw little violin players on television with famous teacher Geza Silvay.

Young violinist Leena Rasanen started to teach me and during the years I was in good music schools in Finland, where I’m from. Music became the most important thing in my life and it’s part of my soul these days.

2. Which instruments do you play?

Violin is my main instrument but I sing and play the piano too. Of course over the years I’ve learned to play other instruments.
I’ve been teaching music in elementary school over 15 years. Violin and piano are my best instruments, others I haven't really mastered yet.

3. What was the first tune(s) you learned?

Oh boy, that’s a hard question. I believe I’ve hummed many melodies when I was a little girl. I’ve always loved listening to music and I really don’t remember my first tunes. Many first melodies are from classical music, because I have classical training. But these days I enjoy many different genres.

4. What are you currently working on?

I’m studying music business certificate in UCLA, Los Angeles. These studies are dynamite! So many great professionals teaching us the secrets of the world wide music business, what could be better than that?

I’m also working on my first original songs with amazing producer Chris Big Flores. When I have time I do modeling, this is a awesome city to do all those creative things. I am hoping to find good connections, so please reach out to me if you’re interested in a collaboration.

5. You recently relocated to Los Angeles? 
How do you like the music scene there?

Yes, I moved to Los Angeles four months ago. This has been so awesome, feels like home to me. The music scene is very diverse and so much is going on all the time. I love this active city where you can find whatever you like to listen to.

6. What has been your biggest obstacle since coming to the United States?

I believe the hardest thing is to find the right people to collaborate with. This is a big city and so many opportunities. I guess there has to be a little bit luck too to be in the right place in the right time. On the other hand this really is the place for big dreams. Just have to stay positive.

7. Do you feel the music scene is accepting of International artists?


United States music markets are really diverse. It’s really hard to say yet how international artists get publicity here. Of course it’s easier for bigger stars, but I feel people are more interested in good produced music, not so much where it’s coming from. Personally I believe that nationality can’t be the obstacle if you make good music. The language of music is international. I find it so encouraging that you don’t need to understand another person’s language, you can still make together.

8. What skills/personal attributes are most important to being successful?

I think I would be a millionaire if I knew the answer to that, but there are of course well known facts how to be successful. You need to develop your skills, practice, practice, practice and practice. You have to believe in yourself and things you’re doing. And you should never give up!

9. What is the importance of the connections you make? 
How can you utilize them?

Connections with the right people are really important. In general I feel that music collaboration is sharing feelings from one person to another. I am hoping to find other musicians, producers, singers, so we can enjoy music together and also create new beautiful things.

10. Where can fans find you on social media?
