Dennis is a classically trained double bassist and guitar teacher. He has studied music at Rhode Island College, the University of Rhode, and the Berklee College of Music on-line program. He holds a BA and MA from URI. In addition he has studied privately with a number of Boston Symphony players and local professionals. He has performed with several orchestras in New England and with soloists such as Dave Brubeck, Judy Collins, Ellen Redy, Pinchas Zuckerman, Roberta Peters, and Mstislav Rostrpovich.
