What the Groove Class Members Are Saying

Richie Frazita - Guitarist

I’ve been playing guitar for over 45 years and I am amazed at how much I have learned and improved since I started taking his course. Vinny is very personable, attentive, makes the lessons fun and provides great instruction and feedback.

Michelle - Drummer

As an adult beginner, I desperately wanted to accelerate the process of finding my voice on the drum kit. I was stuck between “Learning Chops” & Yearning to Just Play Music and “Groove”. I had a strong desire to speak fluently…quickly & efficiently.

Jim Nelson - Bassist

Vinny's deep understanding of rhythm, groove, and harmony allowed me to unlock new levels of creativity and musicality. His teaching style is engaging, encouraging, and full of invaluable insights. Vinny Valentino's Groove Class has been a essential experience for me as a bassist.
