I have always been very active in activities such as; Music, Sports, City Events, Technology, School Clubs, Boy Scouts and being an Outdoorsman. I went through the West Covina Unified School District for grade school, the schools include; Orangewood Elementary, Edgewood Middle School, & West Covina High School. I also go to Citrus Community College to get my A.A. in Arts. I am a very patient, & laid back person who enjoys the company of my girlfriend and friends. I am also a very open person so feel free to message me and talk to me about any questions you may have about my approach to teaching music.

Student Reviews

La Verne, CA

So, in my experience at least, what separates Vince from any other instructor I've had is his level of professionalism. I mean that in a few ways, First and foremost is your comprehensive, thorough teaching style, In terms of technique, I liked that he really stressed the fundamentals - to a degree that not very many other instructors I have had ever bothered to do. Beyond that, his level of attention to detail was unlike that of anybody else I have worked with. I can easily think back to lessons in which we really focused in on small passages, making sure that the quality of every sound is where it should be. In general, his approach to teaching is very logical, each step follows naturally from the last, and that makes a huge difference for students of any skill level, stepping back from the technical side of things, I really admired his enthusiasm and drive for making sure that I was the best I could be, in every possible way. All that aside, I think he is a great guy to be around - thinking back to fall 2012, it was beyond remarkable that you were able to pull me together even when I was in a pretty hopeless state - hell, I ended up winning state for the first time that year. I guess the short summary would be "Vince's profound teaching abilities, professionalism, and dedication to excellence are second to none".
