Vinny Crippen is an experienced performer, composer, and teacher. He began playing the guitar when he was still in elementary school, later adding the piano, and has continued to play ever since! In high school Vinny was one of the most notable musicians in his school, performing in the school's jazz band as well as in multiple bands around town. His passion for music was recognized and he received several scholarships to continue his dream of pursuing music at The University of Colorado Denver. 

At CU Denver, Vinny was fortunate to learn from some amazing professors and also performed in several ensembles on campus. He earned a Bachelor's degree in Music with a focus in Recording Arts & Music Business, and to this day he continues working with incredible musicians, composing new music, and teaching his skills to others.

Vinny has taught both guitar and piano for many years. He is patient and thorough with his students, not only teaching them how to play the songs they enjoy but also ensuring an understanding of the fundamentals of music: chords, scales, proper posture, and music theory. He moves at a pace that is comfortable for the student, and strives to make lessons fun!

Vinny is based in Denver, Colorado, where he is a full-time musician performing regularly on both guitar and keys. His band, Melody Lines, has performed at Sonic Bloom, one of the biggest music festivals in the state, as well as headlining sold-out shows at local venues such as Cervantes. In addition to performing and teaching, Vinny writes and performs original electronic music. He is an especially great fit for any student with an interest in music production or music business.
