About Me

Performing in a number of venues through out Bellingham to Seattle WA Dominic has always had a love for music and especially drums. After graduating high school Dominic took a year off to perform and study drums, knowing that Berklee was soon to come. “I better get my act together so I only get half my ass handed to me” He chuckles.

After moving to Boston, Dominic didn’t waist any time meeting friends and trying to sit in on as many jam sessions as possible. He soon realized this place was for him. While in school he spent about a year playing for corporate events and sunday brunches before putting most of his time into his major of Film Scoring, where he has earned a place on the Dean’s list for his excellent academic performance during the Spring semester of 2009, and also is a nominee for the BMI Top Film Scoring Student Award.

Currently Dominic is giving private drum lessons and is the creator of BangTheDrumsQuickly.com a website designed for tips about drums, and lessons as well.“I can’t imagine being anywhere else right now, not just cause I’m physically here, but because the things I’ve experienced, seen, and learned are going to last me a life time.”
