Gabriella Hirsch

Gabriella Hirsch

Biography

Gabriella is brand new to New York City and thrilled to be pursuing her Masters in Music Composition at NYU with a focus in screen-scoring. A classical pianist fluent in many genres and styles, Gabriella is an accomplished composer, lyricist, music director, and performer. Her musical, "Lucky: A Musical" (music and lyrics), co-written with Sarah Frasco, won 'Most Promising Musical' and 'Best Lyrics' at the 2019 Chicago Musical Theatre Festival. She has completed comedy training at The Second City and iO Chicago, and is a company member of PlayMakers Laboratory.

Gabriella composes for all types of media and provides music direction for improv, sketch comedy, and musical theater. She has nearly ten years of experience teaching piano and other instruments, both privately and in group classes. In addition to the keys, she plays guitar, sings, and dabbles in drums and bass (anything she can get her hands on!) These days, you can find her at the piano accompanying ballet and tap classes.

Gabriella grew up in Virginia and Florida, and was based in Chicago for the past six years after earning her Bachelors in Keyboard Performance and Music Therapy from the University of Miami.
