Dominic Preston – Homeschool Music Teacher

Dominic has been a part of our weekly schedule for over 7 years.  He has taught 5 of us at various times, both piano and guitar.  We love that he comes to our home for lessons (and tolerates our very affectionate dog), making life much easier for this busy homeschooling family.  He is responsive to the music interests of my kids and is always encouraging them to practice and excel.  His recitals are warm and welcoming, a non-intimidating venue for his students to showcase their developing skills in guitar and piano.  Highly recommended!

“My 9 year old daughter was interested in learning to play the guitar. Since we homeschool, having Dominic come to our home during the day has been ideal. We look forward to lessons every week, as Dominic is such a wonderful teacher, and my daughter enjoys her lesson time with him. More importantly, she loves playing the guitar.”

My 9-year old daughter has been taking lessons from Dominic and I am amazed at how much she has learned and how he works with her. She is not only learning to play the guitar but learning how to read music. It is a joy to watch her development and we really enjoy Dominic.
~Terri Langdon

In 3 weeks our daughter was playing songs, and now, a year later, she is playing songs from her own books, with her favorite CDs, and even making up her own!
“Each week, Dominic provided her with a lesson plan that was clear and concise. He wrote her notes throughout the lesson to clarify or emphasize points he made. He is very organized and uses a structured but flexible approach allowing him to tailor his lessons to the individual. We would recommend him to anyone of any age who is interested in learning to play the guitar. He is awesome!

“Dominic has been teaching my two older sons for eighteen months now. Both boys are very busy with school and sports, and try as we might, it is very hard to stick with a set lesson time each week. Dominic is very flexible and accommodating juggling days and times to get the lessons in. In addition to being a great teacher he makes it so much easier to stay with it!”
~Laurie Bodenheimer

“When our daughter turned 10, she expressed an interest in play the guitar. She was already singing in our church choir and we could see she was musically inclined, so we began the search for a guitar teacher, with the patience and personality to teach children. We preferred lessons and were hoping to have the instructor come to our home. We didn’t have to look long – a friend of ours was already a student Dominic’s and highly recommended him. He came to our house for the lesson and our daughter took to him immediately. He was kind and friendly, patient and supportive, skilled and knowledgeable When she struggled, he gently encouraged her to try and to not give up even if she didn’t play the song perfectly in the beginning. It only took our daughter about 3-4 weeks before she was playing songs and now, and now, a year later, she is playing songs from her own her own books, with her CDs, and even making up her own! Each week, Dominic provided her with a lesson plan that was clear and concise. He wrote her notes throughout the lesson to clarify or emphasize points he made. He is very organized and uses a structured but flexible approach allowing him to tailor his lessons to the individual. We would recommend him to any one of any age who is interested in learning to play the guitar. He is awesome!”

“I had looked for a guitar teacher to teach my 8 year old for almost a year. I also discovered that it is very hard to find someone who is willing to teach younger children. Finally after interviewing numerous teachers and trying out three, we were fortunate to find Dominic. He is able to successfully teach children from 8 to 88. His approach is both methodical and fun. He is organized and follows on his lesson plan. He is able to modify his plans to accommodate the needs of each student. He provides clear, and helpful notes for each lesson. I recommending him for any age group.
