Manny, Can you tell us what studying with Vacchiano back in the day was like. I have heard all sorts of stories from former teachers who worked with him but I would like to get your take. You have told us about what method books you have used and as I have heard there was alot of transposition. I also heard you never got to play what you prepared in lessons. You would always be sight reading something else. Would Vacchiano ever play in lessons? What would a typical lessons with him be like? Is that story about Miles / Vacchiano and the "cigarette" true? Thanks!
