Vic is a great teacher....doesn't hold back! You'll know how the lessons are going. Vic actually taught me basic banjo technique as well and I played drums in a band he mentored for a few years. It turned out to be a terrific experience and he taught me an awful lot about dynamics on drums in spite of that NOT being his instrument. He's a great teacher! And ARTIST. If you have the chance to take lessons from Vic, do it!!

Vic is a multi talented musician. He is able to translate musical skills and techniques to the students learning style and level. He has an easy going, warm yet direct manner. And when you go for a lesson he will have a different guitar every time! Vic is one of the best guitar teachers I’ve had.

Vic makes learning easy and fun. I’ve always felt intimidated to learn the guitar, but he’s very approachable and never makes me feel insecure or uncomfortable. I have learned so much, and I have even played in front of people, which is something I never thought I’d do!

Vic is an amazing musician and teacher. I have been taking lessons with him for about two years now and he has helped me take my playing to the next level. Vic has very high expectations of his students and is always finding ways to challenge me further. He is very encouraging and is always stressing the importance of correct technique when playing. I would definitely recommend Vic.

Vic is a tremendous teacher and mentor for both young and adult students. He’s taught both of my sons for a number of years and their improvement was obvious from the start. Vic’s love for music is contagious with his students.
