About the Master: 

Violinist Gabriel Meza currently serves as Assistant Concertmaster of the Annapolis Symphony, Principal Violin II

of the York Symphony and as a section violin member of the Harrisburg Symphony. In addition to his normal

concert schedules in these orchestras, Gabriel has appeared as guest concertmaster of the Annapolis Chamber

Orchestra. Gabriel has also enjoyed representing the Annapolis Symphony in chamber music concerts and he has

performed numerous times as a substitute musician in the Baltimore Symphony and Delaware Symphony


In 2016, Gabriel graduated from the Peabody Institute of Johns Hopkins University, having earned Bachelors,

Masters, and Graduate Performance Diploma degrees there. While at Peabody, he was awarded first prize in its

undergraduate violin competition (Marbury Violin Competition), and he was awarded top merit scholarships for all

of his studies there. Gabriel’s teacher throughout his years at Peabody was Mr. Keng-Yuen Tseng. His other

teachers have included Qian Zhou, with whom Gabriel studied during an exchange semester in Singapore at the

Yong Siew Toh Conservatory, and Kevin Lawrence of North Carolina School of the Arts. While studying at

Peabody, Gabriel performed in solo and chamber music recitals connected with Phoenix Arts Management, LLC in

the Baltimore area.

Not only a performer, Gabriel has also enjoyed teaching violin students in a variety of settings. He is currently on

faculty at Annapolis Symphony Academy and has also taught at Keystone Musical Arts Center in Camp Hill,

Pennsylvania. Gabriel has taught extensively both in person and through live online video. As a teacher, Gabriel

seeks to develop the highest level of excellence possible in each student through a challenging and encouraging

atmosphere and he wishes to introduce his students to the same richly rewarding and enjoyable experiences of

making music that have provided him with the motivation to strive for excellence in his own musical career.
