Gerard Antonio Petrella

I first held a guitar at age three and have been studying since! I have been following the Royal Conservatory of Music method and am currently preparing for the Level 6 exam. I have won the RCM National Gold Medal for Levels 3 and 5. My amazing teacher is Mr. Jeremy Collins. Each week, he teaches me each with so much care, kindness and patience. I enjoy learning new pieces and love a good challenge. Outside of guitar, I like to play tennis and support the Miami Heat basketball team! Thank you for listening to my entry and providing this fantastic opportunity to perform during these difficult times!
