Dominic Canning

Learning Support Assistant

Dominic is a London-based composer, producer & multi-instrumentalist. Having forged his craft as part of inspired outfits TriForce & Project Karnak, the prolific South Londoner is ready to step to the fore with his debut solo offering.

A proud alumni of jazz music education and artist development institutions Kinetika Bloco and Tomorrow’s Warriors.

The stars are already aligned: a fateful encounter with saxophonist Ahnansé placed Dominic at the epicenter of the Steamdown explosion. Whilst playing at their legendary weekly nights, he was approached by award-winning soul/ R&B vocalist Celeste to become her musical director, a position that has placed him on stage performing at the Brit Awards and Later with Jools Holland, as well as opening up new touring and recording opportunities.

Cannings soundscape is a synthesis of lessons gleaned from forays into hip hop and free jazz, musical adventures in Brazil and life experiences as a young black man growing up in London. His forthcoming album ‘Renaissance’, set for release on Brownswood Records, promises to reinforce his reputation as a heavyweight player with a message for the people.

Working at SoundSkool is such an enriching experience as it allows me to help the next generation of musicians find their footing within the industry, whilst working alongside incredible tutors who also have extensive industry experience.
