Gary did a great job of getting me started on my first piano lesson. Learned a lot on my first day...hope I can measure up to my practice plan for the week! Bravo!

Gary's just fantastic. He has the knowledge and the attitude that makes learning both effective and fun. He's working with me to help learn the kind playing I want (mostly modern songs) but knows when to reach for other material to help learn important techniques.

Gallo does a great job of knowing how to assess your playing, and give clear and encouraging feedback on how to get better. He certainly taken my trumpet playing and teaching to the next level!
Emelye
Our son has been studying with Mr Gallo for several months, and he has been showing great improvements, in such a short amount of time, in both the school band and at home. Mr Gallo is kind, patient, and encouraging. Our son immediately felt comfortable with him, and looks forward to his lessons. Mr Gallo is accommodating and understanding if we ever need to reschedule. Even when we are eventually given the opportunity to begin in person lessons with a teacher whose is near our home, we would like to continue with Mr Gallo. We can’t imagine our son being taught by anyone else! We highly recommend him as a teacher, he is simply wonderful!

"My name is Dee. I have been a middle school band teacher in the Clarkstown School District for over 20 years. I play trumpet in a local concert band and jazz big band each week. I have taken trumpet lessons with Vincent for a year and a half. Through his instruction and encouragement I have made great strides in my technical abilities, range and endurance. I appreciate the well prepared insights and materials he has for me at each lesson, whether it is written material, or "youtube" video insights he has researched and thought helpful. I am very impressed with his musicianship when he models, plays duets, and performs for me. His trumpet performing is wide ranging and always of the highest caliber, whether live, or in recording. As a teacher Vinnie always shows sincerity and humility which puts his students at ease and in a great place to learn."
