Since 1991, Dominic has been on the teaching staff of the Royal Academy of Music in London, giving classes in jazz and improvisation to opera singers and classical pianists. He also spent two years teaching conducting and composition at the American School of Modern Music in Paris, and from 1993-2001 he gave classes in musicianship at the Junior Department of London's Royal College of Music. In 2000 he was made an Honorary Associate of the Royal Academy.

In 2006 he directed a two-day "Jazz Singing Masterclass" specially designed for classical singers to learn more about the art of jazz singing. This was the first event of its kind ever staged at the Royal Academy of Music, and was the subject of a feature in 'The Singer' magazine.

He has written two highly successful books: "A Classical Approach to Jazz Piano Harmony" and "A Classical Approach to Jazz Piano Improvisation", both published worldwide by the Hal Leonard Corporation. 

Dominic has also cultivated a career as a business speaker, exploring music as a metaphor for the world of business. In 2001, he founded Music & Management to launch a range of musical presentations for executive development programmes.  His client-base is now worldwide and he makes frequent trips to New York, San Francisco, Shanghai, Bangkok, Brussels, Barcelona and Paris to speak about the power of music.



"I enjoyed immensely discovering new ways of interpreting a lyric and Dominic's encouragement was wonderful..."
Karita Mattila, opera singer
