Dominic has been an excellent voice coach. Each week he uses appropriate techniques tailored for the unique challenges that I've been having and genuinely shows an interest in my progress. He's always pleasant to be with and continues to be punctual. On the weeks where my work schedule affects our slot, he's been more than obliging in finding another appropriate slot. Before each session, Dominic makes a point of reaching out to me to confirm all is ok. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking for coaching at any level.

Great Teacher

Great intro to singing. I have never taken singing lessons because I never thought I could have a singing voice, but after taking this intro course with Dominic it made me realize that I could develop my voice into something good. Dominic is very knowledgeable and very patient. I recommend using headphones so you can hear the piano as you are going through breathing exercises.

Dominic is terrific! I haven't been this close to a piano or keyboard in probably 30 years. He was very patient and kept me focused.It's amazing how things come back to you. I will definitely keep him as my teacher. Thank you Dominic!


Deeann May 14, 2014

Other than a technical difficulty, the instructor was fantastic. I learned a lot, and look forward to learning more!

Very easy to relate to! I will definitely come back to this Helpout!

Jackson May 14, 2014

Dominic was very knowledgeable and helpful. Although I don't have a great deal of music experience, he was able to teach about basic music theory and I felt that I came away with a learning experience. I would highly recommend him to friends.

Mariah May 14, 2014

Amazing teacher that is really fun to work with. Thanks so much!

My lessons

Dominic is patient and thoughtful, I am someone that started piano two years ago, and I am now in my 40'S therefore set in in my ways, and i could not read music and had no idea how to play but decided one day I wanted to try. Dominic tries to get me as his student to feel the music through intuition, while also learning the parameters. He also has taught me that there are no mistakes; and it is important to have fun and keep moving forward. This is similar to the best wine connoisseurship classes that I have taken which make the point that while you can learn about wine the best wine is the wine that you enjoy.

My 10 yr old daughter took her first songwriting lesson with Dominic, and he was super nice and patient. She loved it. Dominic gave her some really good ideas about how to get started. He kept it simple and easy to understand.

Felipa Mar 6, 2014


Dominic instantly made me feel at ease and gave me a lot to think about as I continue to practice my singing every day. In just a short session, he helped me to warm up effectively and think more about how my breath, jaw, and tongue all effect my sound. Plus, we sang some Joni Mitchell :) All in all, a great lesson!
