His life experience brought him into the genre of Traditional African music, with Babatunde Olatunji in Manhattan and then in Los Angeles with Ayo Adeyemi and Sly Degbos.
In the Eighties he got involved with with MetaMusic Productions where he gained experience in music for the awakening of inner psychic centers through the mysticism of Oscar Ichazo's Arica Institute.

Vinnie has been a music teacher and guitar instructor since the age of 21. He teaches from his apartment in Venice, by the ocean, or through Zoom and Skype.
Vinnie's focus is not just based around learning to play guitar but also teaches in-depth Music Theory so the student can eventually continue learning independently.
His forensic investigations into Music Theory led him to discoveries about the mechanics of music that go above and beyond what is taught in the halls of academia.
He recently made a new discovery he calls 'The Parallel/Relative Switch' which completely rewrites theory analysis of music.
He has an ongoing YouTube Series called "Fragments of Infinity" which lays out his unique perspective on how music really works.
