Dominic Panunto


Teaching Philosophy

I am a firm believer that we all can be our own best teachers but first we must learn how to learn. I strive to provide an encouraging and positive environment in which students can receive direction and begin to define their own path forward. Musical education should include study of the instrument but also of music theory fundamentals and appreciation for music itself.


Bachelor’s and Masters in Music, Temple University.
