« We found Vinnie via a music tutoring website before this summer. My nine year old son has had 7 guitar lessons since this summer started. Vinnie has been keeping my son interested and they get on well. My son thinks Vinnie's music is both cool and classic; he always looks forward to his guitar learning session with Vinnie. »

We found Vinnie via a music tutoring website before this summer. My nine year old son has had 7 guitar lessons since this summer started.

Vinnie is a one-of-a-kind instructor and mentor. Both of my children, now aged 15 and 11, have been taking lessons from Vinnie for over three years and they remain as enthusiastic now as when they first started. He makes music fun without abandoning discipline. He's a great musician, a dedicated teacher and a wonderful role model.

Christopher

I met Vinnie about 2 years ago, when I wanted to hone my guitar skills after learning on and off for 10 years. I wanted to take myself to another level. Through serendipity, I managed to meet Vinnie.

Vinnie is strict yet relaxed. He shows the exact path and methods to improve without being intimidating or boring. He identifies foundational weaknesses, so one could play better in the long term. He teaches how to feel music, so that one would play naturally.

I recommend Vinnie because he will help you to improve and more importantly, love music.
