    I have been working with Dom for about a month now. I am a self-taught guitarist that wanted to take the next step and incorporate theory and go from playing songs to actually create my own. Also I am out to improve my skills to get me better. In just the month, I am learning to read music and playing songs while incorporating the theory I really wanted on to my lessons. Dom really cares about his students and is very interested that I become a better guitar player. As a result, he is consistently pushing me out of my comfort zone and leaving with challenges to work on in the form of songs, exercises, etc. I can easily say that I am having a blast and I am always looking forward to our next lesson. I highly recommend Dom, he is a great teacher and a great person.

    I started taking lessons about a month ago, and in that time, I've already learned sight-reading, soloing, and multiple genres. Dom is super encouraging, and knows what I need to learn and is a good judge of how long it takes me to absorb any given subject. He's also just a really great person, and is really friendly and easy to talk to. Highly, highly recommended!!!

About this pro

My teaching stands out because I've been teaching for over 50 years and have taught hundreds of students of whom have become professional musicians. I am respected throughout the world as a major player/composer/educator/ author and journalist. I love teaching. I learn as much from the students as they learn from me. It is always a challenge to teach someone new.

    Q & A

    • What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?
      Yes a standard price is $50 per lesson, which is an hour, but sometimes can run longer that I don't charge for. I am not a clock watcher. The lesson is finished when I am satified that students understands. I charge $100 for professional musicians.
    • What is your typical process for working with a new customer?
      It all depends on what level they are at.
