    Dear Vince,

    I never had a doubt about your ability to teach however, at first I was sceptical about guitar lessons online but after seeing how much my son learned from you and how quickly he improved after taking lessons with you I would absolutely recommend you and Guitar Lessons From Anywhere to everyone.

    You are a masterful guitarist a fantastic teacher with an uncanny ability to keep your students interrested and coming back for more. My son can't wait for his next guitar lesson.

    Thank you!

    I have performed along side Vince in various live situations well over 10 years now. Although I never received lessons from him, his knowledge of theory and ear for music shines through in every performance. Many of our performances included jamming 'on the fly' and would come off like a well rehearsed performance due to his ability to follow and predict chord changes, somehow melting his leads in with the changes. So if you want insight into how to pick up a guitar and rip through some scales like you've been playing since the day you were born, or just strum some chords at the camp fire this is the guy to show you how.

    My history with Vince stared back in 1990, at the age of 15, when I began taking weekly lessons in High School. Vince was the first teacher I had who not only understood my interest in hard rock music, but also shared the same passion for artists that drew me to the instrument, like Satriani, Vai, EVH, etc. After going off to college, getting a full time job, getting married and having a child, etc, I found myself 20 yrs later in a guitar rut, so to speak. I took a chance and googled the one teacher from my past who actually made a difference in my playing - VINCE! Ironically, I found him again and have been taking lessons for the past year. The beauty of Vince as a teacher is his ability to tailer his lesson plan to your specific musical goals. I've accomplished more in the past year than I had in the previous 20, and that is not an exaggerated compliment, it's the truth! Vince is not only a monster player and performer, but he's got chops, technique and theory with the amazing ability to make you understand it all. There are lots of good players out there, but very few teachers can do that. I drive 45 mins each way for my lessons and could probably find a teacher right around the corner from my house, but I know they will never compare to the one I have now. I'm so happy with what I've accomplished this year and every week is a fun challenge for me to see what he throws at me next. To sum all this up: If you're considering learning to play the guitar, or you're already an accomplished musician looking to re-spark your creativity, check this guy out. You won't be disappointed!!

    As a student for over 2 years, I've found that Vince is truly a professional musician with a deep understanding of his instrument. Lessons are very much tailored to the individual student and accomdations to a student's diversity is handled with an exceptional knowledge base. Highly recommended!

    Vince Genella is a great guitarist and a great teacher, more importantly, Vince is a great MUSICIAN and he has the unique ability to teach his students how to think like musicians, not just guitar players. There is a big difference in that and it is not always the case with other guitar teachers. He teaches you how to LEARN and avoids filling your lesson time with exercises or information that won't help you grow as a musician, but rather focuses on aspects of music that help YOU become unique and find your 'voice' as a guitarist and musician. He is also just a very cool dude, has incredible chops, a great ear, and keeps you motivated to play and improve. JC.

    I've known Vince for over 17 years and can honestly say that his passion for music and sharing his knowledge through teaching is something that all ages can benefit from. As a fellow musician, I really appreciate when someone takes the time to Taylor-make his lessons to fit each individual's needs and desires which Vince has been doing for quite some time now. Also, if you need any help with gear, go no farther-Vince has set up countless pedal-boards-including mine and is a expert at it! Whether it's music lessons or lessons on gear and the music business, I'd highly recommend Vince Genella.

    I recently hired Vince to perform at a 15th anniversary party for my company. We invited around 60 of our best customers and they all really enjoyed the event and especially the music provided by Vince. I would not hesitate to hire Vince again for another event.
