Meet Gabrielle Clover!

Drive, determination and pure talent are just a few of the amazing qualities that Gabrielle Clover displays! Taking off with the piano at age 9, Gabrielle took her instrumental ventures to a higher level by introducing herself to other musical elements like the violin, and choir. She even took on the xylophone and snare drum in her high school percussion ensemble with no prior experience! With great music teachers in piano and violin, Gabby competed in the Florida State Junior Music Convention annually, taking home state titles every year in events like sight reading, fiddling, and several duet categories as well. Aside from music performance, she took on the theoretical side of music by studying in-depth music theory as well. Although she is recently graduated from Fordham University in New York City majoring in Psychology, she still has a passion for performing and making music in her spare time.

Let’s get to know this remarkable young lady better…

Music is a powerful tool to express yourself, how has it impacted your life?

Music has been my ultimate release and therapy. I love performing for others because it’s a great way to express yourself without words. Whenever you’re having a bad day, it’s such a great release to be able to channel any stresses or frustrations by playing beautiful music.

What has been your favorite song you’ve covered? How long did it take you to learn?

My favorite song to cover is actually one I’m working on now, “Someone Like You” by Adele. The piano instrumental meshes so nicely with the violin I may do a couple more after this one! It took me about a week to learn completely, and right now I’m in the process of recording it so I can finally get it on YouTube.

What are 3 pieces of advice you would give to girls who wanted to pursue their dreams in music but are too nervous to start?

First, I’d say embrace your true potential. I believe in the saying “you can do anything if you put your mind to it,” and that includes music as well.

Second, you have to really want to play an instrument to accomplish your goal. It doesn’t come easy, but is definitely possible if you truly work at it and are dedicated.

Third, go for it! Being a musician is such an accomplished feat, and is definitely possible for anyone who wants to do so.

If you could perform with anyone on stage who would it be and why?

I would love to perform with Alicia Keys on stage. After seeing her perform live in concert I was absolutely amazed! She’s extremely talented and I admire her musical diversity.

We are all about empowerment at C.O.R.E mag, What does empowerment mean to you?

Empowerment, to me, means embracing your true identity to the fullest and not being afraid to be yourself. Target your inner talents and strengths, and take advantage of the beautiful woman that you are.

Where do you see your music taking you in the next 5 years?

While I am currently in school as a psychology major, music is still a significant hobby for me. In the next 5 years, I hope to continue performing and playing beautiful music. After graduating, I would love to begin teaching and to possibly find some ensembles to perform with. Who knows, maybe one of my covers will get noticed by a celebrity!

Fun Faves- Fave Food,? Artist? Song? Celeb Crush?

Fave food would have to be cheez-it’s. I can eat those things all day!

Artist – it would have to be a tie between Erykah Badu and Dwele

Song – that’s a tough one…I have such a wide range of favorites because I listen to so many genres!

Celeb Crush – Will Smith is definitely a charmer!
