Born in Australia of Italian parents, guitarist Vincenzo Martinelli was brought into the magical world of music as a young boy through the influence of his father, a mandolin player from the region known as Abbruzzo in Central Italy.
Vincenzo began his early musical training on acoustic and electric guitars, having his early formal training with a friend of his grandfather.
Vincenzo first studied classical guitar at the Academy of Guitar in Sydney and then at the New South Wales Conservatorium of Music, graduating with a Diploma of the State Conservatorium of Music (D.S.C.M) and a Bachelor of Music degree. In his final year he was awarded the highest honor for a graduating student, the Keith Noake Memorial Prize. Soon after, Vincenzo was awarded an Italian government scholarship, which led to a period of instruction under the celebrated Maestro Lucio Dosso at the Centro Romano Della Gitarra in Rome, a school established by the legendary Andrés Segovia.
“...Vince always conducts himself with style, confidence and relates well with guests...he has our highest recommendation as a musician...”
