Please take the time to study with someone who can really help you develop your skills.

Quit wasting your time and money on useless lessons with little-to-no improvement. Work with a professional instructor who has developed a complete music education system—not just someone who can teach you some blues riffs or Stairway to Heaven.

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

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

I guarantee you will learn more from me than any other teacher or I will give you your money back!

Remember, just because someone is a good player does not mean they are able to teach you properly. Many good players are sincere, but lack the proper teaching skills. Professional guitar & bass and music instruction is absolutely essential.


  • Jeffrey GoldAward-winning Film Composer

    I have collaborated with Vince Lauria on a number of projects as executive producer or producer of films and as a collaborating composer. Vince Lauria is gifted in multiple ways: Vince Lauria is a virtuoso on the guitar and virtuosic in generating musical ideas when composing. He is a patient instructor who has a very deep understanding of music theory and often is able to anticipate or suss out the actual meaning of your question even if you are unable to articulate it at his level of understanding. It is always a pleasure to work with him because it is effortless.

    I’m very glad I selected Vince Lauria as my guitar teacher. His pitch on Craig’s List stood out from all the others because he talked about learning and understanding the fundamentals of music, which is exactly what I wanted. Vince is positive and communicates ideas clearly. He sets a pace that makes real progress possible. He is patient and flexible in setting goals and always takes the time to make sure that I understand the main points of each lesson. He has proven that his teaching methods work. I have owned a guitar for many years, but the past three months of study with Vince have let me exceed anything I have done on my own. I strongly recommend Vince Lauria as your next teacher.

    Unlike other guitar lessons, Vince’s lessons are geared to the goal of the student. Whether it is learning: theory, technique, riffs, songs, or adding to one’s own songs (in all styles), Vince’s knowledge and communicative ability is substantial. I feel extremely fortunate to have had him as a teacher.

  • Mary G

    I have been working with Vince Lauria since April of 2008. I write lyrics for songs and he does the melody. It has been a match made in heaven. If I hear the song in my mind a certain way, I just sing it to him and he will play the music back. He is a brilliant musician. He can play any and all genres of music. Our songs are now in Nashville waiting to be recorded. It has been a dream come true.

  • Mark S

    Vince is not only a master musician and composer—but best of all for my son and me—a brilliant teacher. Vince makes learning to play guitar and bass both easy and fun! You quickly learn to play songs you like because he can notate by ear virtually any music into his easy-to-read tab system. Best of all, Vince is simply a great guy who is always positive in nurturing your progress. Highly recommended for students at any level!

  • Jennifer P

    Vince Lauria is a phenomenal musician–a true genius. But being great at something doesn’t make someone a great teacher. In Vince we have found both. I couldn’t ask for a better guitar teacher for my daughter. Even at 5 years old, she was playing entire songs. I think the best thing, though, is that she loves having Vince as her guitar teacher; that makes the whole learning process worthwhile. Having known Vince for over 5 years now, I can honestly say I would recommend him unequivocally as the best guitar teacher in the area, even including all surrounding states! He always has my daughter’s best interests in mind – even going so far as to transpose the music of whatever song she is learning, to fit the size of her hands. To me, that is going the extra mile, every time. It has been a fantastic experience knowing Vince as an instructor and a person. In my opinion, he is irreplaceable. Absolutely the best. Accept no substitutes.

    As an adult student, who had taken some piano lessons a few years ago, I was looking for a music teacher who could teach me to play bass, and expand my musical knowledge, including piano. Vince is an accomplished musician with a wide range of experience. He encourages his students to set goals, keeps his lessons interesting, and is very flexible throughout the process. He will teach what you want to learn, including your favorite songs, but also functions as any good teacher should: he knows what you need to learn to improve musically, including theory. Along with guitar and bass, Vince also teaches piano. If you are serious about music you should be exposed to the piano. Today, I am no longer a beginner, but more confident in my ability and looking forward to improving and continuing to learn and grow under Vince’s guidance.

    I would recommend Vince Lauria to music students at any level, from beginner to serious students.
