*** Lesson Details ***
Through my methods of teaching a student could excel, learn, and become an accomplish musician at any age. I work within the age group that is, to teach in the level of that student instead of above them.I have help students to get into bands and become songwriters. I show students how to practice within 15 minutes and become productive in ideas and have fun in the process all ages could have fun. I am one of those individuals who love to teach music and my reward is when you learn and feel good about your studies in the instrument so my last words to conclude in all of this is “have fun and enjoy the beauty of music.”

I am emphatic about learning music I cover all the grounds in music such as theory the basics to harmony and my favorite songwriting and get you to play what you like
I have worked with all ages and the one thing I know in the beginning is to make that student feel comfortable and to get the attention from that student so they can learn, play, and most importantly have fun with it.
I show students time management in their studies how to practice in such a little time I plan each lesson and if the lesson is not right for that day I quickly go into a second plan. I can always detect if the plan does not go well because there is one thing a teacher must know and that is to teach in the level of the student and not beyond so they can succeed properly and move on to the next level.

Doctorate in music
Mar 1976 - Present
Professional musician and songwriter

Note to the reader in my profession I must view every possible subject in the music world music is full of variables. I have spent literally fifty years on this journey to quest what is on the other side of music, saying that here are the important parts of this paradigm
1) Has an open mind
2) Must be relax and patient
3) Love music
If you have all three components then you are in!

I focus on all levels and I have a formula for each
I write everything down so you will always remember
and I could get you to even write your own music!
Think about it, this can be done at any age I have the proof and the technique

Bass Guitar · In studio

Having taken guitar lessons as a kid myself I know the importance of having a patient passionate teacher Dr. Vincent possesses all those qualities and more. A qualified teacher, with a PhD, who knows his stuff but is also able to break down his vast knowledge into bits that even a middle schooler could understand. My son is excelling at his base guitar thanks to Dr. Vincent and is developing a love for his instrument I hadn't expected.

Vincent and I hit it off right from the beginning. He is very knowledgable about music and the bass in particular, which is what I wanted. He also is very comfortable to work with and has a very spacious studio to work in.

Great Teacher

Vince has shown patience and professionalism since the first day I started.
He answers questions fully and allow the lessons to flow at a pace that works for me.
His lessons stay on point and we don't proceed unless I have a grasp of the technique or principle.
I recommend him for prospective students of all ages.

The Man is Patient & Helpful

Since Dr. C. and I are the same age, we connected musically and share the same taste in artists and musical genres.
He takes the time to answer all questions and allows me the freedom to experiment while under his supervision.
I feel I am grasping the rudimentary basics of the instrument and look forward to my next visit.
There's an ease to our lessons and I never feel as if I'm being rushed.
Recommend him highly.
