I hired Dominic Sbrega to teach my son how to play upright bass. I am a very thorough researcher, so I called conductors of local orchestras and bands to try to find the best teacher for my son. I was surprised that Dom’s name came up so frequently, given that he was still in high school. However, even at his young age, he had a great local and national reputation. As a result, I decided to give Dom a chance. Though my son was studying classical music, he was also interested in jazz. Dom was adept at teaching both. Dom was extremely patient and always very clear in his instructions. Dom’s lessons managed to be both demanding yet fun. My son adored him, enjoying every second of his lessons. I could not imagine a better bass teacher.
