Learn from a professional musician and award-winning composer in the music industry for over 20 years.

Haven't you grown tired of faking it? It's time to truly learn and be able to apply music theory. If you are not correctly instructed in the first two years, bad habits that last a lifetime will be developed.

It is better to study correctly in the beginning than to waste years trying to correct bad practice habits later on.

I have taught many students of all ages, and a lot of them who had lessons somewhere else say, "I haven't improved past a certain point. I cannot seem to play the way I want to!"

You can read my students' testimonials on my website.

I am an award-winning composer and a professional musician. I am a former instructor and not just a graduate from one of Los Angeles, California's top music trade schools.

My guitar instruction book has been utilized at Boston's Berklee College of Music, the top music school in the world.

My other books can be found at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Borders.

I am an award-winning musician who has collaborated with Hall of Fame recording artist Dave Marks (The Beach Boys), Denny Laine of The Moody Blues and Wings (the band of Paul McCartney after The Beatles), Duncan Faure (Rabbitt, Trevor Rabin, Madonna), award-winning film composer Jeffrey Gold (Abby Singer, Pigweed Philosopher, Nowhere Fast), John Debney who is an Academy Award nominee and film composer (The Passion of the Christ, Sin City), TV/film composer Dan Ferguson (Toto, Steely Dan, Cher), actor Mark McClure (Apollo 13, Superman, Back to the Future), Emmy award winner Jimmy Danelli (Winnie the Pooh, Disney), Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton (The Falcon and The Snowman, Ordinary People), Platinum artist Donnie Vie (Enuff Z'nuff), Jazz great Richie Cole, Jake E. Lee (Badlands, Ozzy Osbourne, Sarah Thiele), Mike Bordeman (drummer for Spencer Davis) and Vinnie Castaldo (Phil Collins, Aynsley Dunbar). I am a music theory and guitar instructor for members of the R and R Top 40 (No. 27) charting pop-rock band Kropp Circle and was an instructor to guitarist Chris Iorio of the Billboard (No. 4) charting band (EMI/Virgin Records), Adelitas Way ("Invincible").

My music is available on Amazon and iTunes, and my filmography is available on IMDb.

Take the time to really understand and learn chords, scales and song construction.

Please spare time to study with a person who can really help you improve your skills.

Stop wasting your money and time on worthless lessons with little to no improvement. Work with a professional instructor who has established a full music education system, not just anyone who can teach you Stairway to Heaven or some blues riffs.

I teach using a very easy guitar neck diagram system (for more details, click on the diagram), as well as traditional music staff reading.

I use my own easy piano tablature system and teach traditional music reading in piano lessons.

I guarantee that compared to any other teacher, you will learn more from, or I will give you your money back!

Remember, not all good players can teach well. Many of them are sincere, but lack the proper teaching skills. Professional guitar and bass, and music instruction is absolutely essential.

I charge $85.00 an hour $50.00 for half an hour. All instructional materials are included!

Please email me, or call me, should you have queries.

    I had been playing bass guitar for a year already, when I decided that I had to kick it up a notch. I was referred to Vince Lauria by a friend. Little did I know I was with the best music instructor in Vegas. I've been taking lessons twice a week for the past 2 years, and love every minute of it. Vince somehow finds a way to teach so much in so little time and still make it fun. Even when I was overseas taking lessons via email, they were still challenging and exciting. He uses a different style of tablature that makes learning songs and melodies twice as easy. He is extremely knowledgeable on numerous instruments ranging from the banjo to the piano as well as different styles of playing. Music theory lessons with him have not only exponentially increased my playing ability on bass, but expanded my understanding of how music is composed. After recently coming back from an audition and tour at Berklee College of Music, Boston I realized that Vince had been preparing me all along by using the same style of teaching that the professors use! I would not hesitate to recommend him to any musician in the country.

Q&A

Describe a recent project you are fond of. How long did it take?
I worked on the filmscore to the feature-length documentary Pigweed Philosopher: The Untethered Zen of Kimball Johnson with director Gabriel Lakey and executive producer Jeffrey Gold. The film went on to win a number of festival awards, including: Winner - 2009 Toronto Independent Film Festival - Feature Documentary (International) Winner - 2009 Moab Film Festival Winner - 2009 London Independent Film Festival - Feature Documentary (International) Winner - 2009 Park City Film Music Festival - Director's Choice: Gold Medal for Excellence - Feature Documentary The official website is: http://www.pigweedphilosopher.com Synopsis: Kimball Johnson is a non-conformist with a heart—and someone willing to lose everything to tilt at windmills. In the style of esteemed documentary filmmaker Albert Maysles, documentary filmmaker Gabriel Lakey spent six years following this true American original. Some might call Kimball Johnson crazy, some might call him foolish, and others might call him enlightened, but pursuing his passions headlong without a harness can bear a heavy price. Would you be willing to lose everything you owned for the feeling of having tried and lost? Is this pigweed philosopher an unconventional genius who figured out that life is best lived at the outer fringes or is he just the quintessential Don Quixote of broken dreams who never found his way home?
