Great training, great staff! They instilled a passion in me that I didn't even know I had. It's definitely the best school out there and definitely gave me the opportunity to have the job I have now. I currently work at Gibson guitars USA as a finishing repair tech and if I hadn't gone to this school I would not be in the position I am in now. Thanks for the memories I will never forget! - November 13, 2015

My son attends this school. When we talk on the phone I feel the joy coming through the wires. I'm so thankful for R-V and can hardly wait to see and play the insturments that he is making. - April 24, 2017

The best decision I've ever made in my entire life. Roberto-Venn is by far more than just a trade school. Extremely knowledgeable instructors, full creative freedom and the pride that comes with seeing your finished product makes me proud to say I'm a Roberto-Venn graduate. 10/10 would do again. - April 15, 2015

An introduction to a very deep and multifaceted craft. You get out of it what you put into it... There's always going to be individuals that don't jive with certain courses in life, but 40 years in business and alumni working in most of the major guitar companies in the world speaks volumes. There's always room for improvement, but overall I had fun, made some very cool instruments, and learned a lot. - March 2, 2016

The course is not only designed to build and repair guitars, it makes you think, analyze and use different techniques when it comes to the profession of Luthiery. I highly recommend taking this course. - March 9, 2018

I attended the Spring 2006 semester at Roberto Venn and it was a phenomenal experience. I built a fantastic foundation of knowledge, gained some humility, met some incredible people, and started a career path that, to this day, is also a lifelong passion. I don't know if they still do it (I hope they do) but the quick crash-course in Entrepreneurial Business at the end of the semester was incredibly valuable, to an extent I didn't fully appreciate until years later, and something that similar schools oftentimes fail to include in their itinerary. I'd do it all again if I had to. - December 28, 2016
