My name is Alex Domini and I am a fourth generation musician who offers private and semi-private lessons in music literacy, music theory, sight reading, and clarinet. I started my formal training at the age of nine and by high school I was accepted and studying at the prestigious Manhattan School of Music: Precollege Division, double majoring in Classical Voice and Clarinet. In college, I got a Bachelor of Fine Arts from The Hartt School of Music, which boasts one of the best Music Education programs in the country. Since graduating, I have worked with multiple composers as a singer to develop music because of my sure-fire techniques to make reading music as simple as reading a book.
In my classes, students will be grounded and centered by the Kodaly method of music pedagogy, while being encouraged to create and express themselves through their new understanding of music. In one hour of class, students will enforce ideas taught last class, learn why the rules of music exist, and through curious exploration, learn how to break them.
I am an enthusiastic music lover who believes that an education in music transcends academic success. It inspires empathy, creativity, and new pathways to seeing the world around us. Let's inspire the next generation of creators and innovators with what makes us the most human: music.

Alex is a delight to work with! I am an adult student who has tried and tried and tried to understand music theory but never stuck with it. This is my first time trying one on one lessons vs. a class and Alex's approach paired with his intentional and thoughtful care and attention to my specific goals as a singer wanting to improve theory is a game-changer. It is clear that Alex is a subject matter expert, but he has never once made me feel dumb or embarrassed. Alex is warm, precise, and patient. I would recommend him to anyone I know looking to improve this skillset.Show More
Alex is a fantastic teacher! I came to him as an adult student having tried to learn the basics of clarinet on my own, and he quickly fixed the bad habits and technique mistakes I had picked up in the absence of an instructor. He found fun ways to keep me interested in practicing, while also making sure I worked on technique to form a solid foundation for my playing. Alex is well-versed in several varying musical genres, so he can easily recommend repertoire and stylistic tips appropriate for whichever direction your student wishes to take their clarinet performance.Show More
Inspiring children and adults alike to learn all of the wonders of music and using it to inspire change and creativity within yourself.
I have worked with Golden Globe, Emmy - Winning Actors on stage and continue to impress creatives, especially Music Directors, with my quick learning curve and interpretation of music that is succinct, thoughtful, and fully realized.
