Gabunia taught many outstanding Georgian pianists.
Concerts by his students were always keenly anticipated events in the country’s cultural life.

   Along with the well-established classical repertoire, he actively promoted works by Schoenberg, Kurtag, Berio and Stockhausen, which were otherwise rarely performed in the Soviet Union.

   At various stages in his career, Gabunia taught as a visiting professor at the conservatories of Paris, London, The Hague and New Orleans.

   Soon after he died, his students honoured his memory by founding a national piano competion in his name.
