I'm really enjoying lessons with Vincent! I played trumpet for years in high school and college, and I have just gotten back into it. He's helped me develop my embouchure better and improved my technique. He's easy to work with, too. Looking forward to more lessons with him!

I have had one lesson with Vinnie and I am really stoked. His experience and depth of knowledge are so obvious when you talk to him. I believe that I have made the right choice in beginning to take lessons from him. Cheers...
