Dominic started playing the violin at the age of five, with Chloe Lees, an established violin teacher who used 'Suzuki method'. He studied both classical and folk music enjoying them both equally. The Suzuki method primarily develops learning music by ear, as opposed to notation.

Dominic then studied with Kenneth Mitchell in Leeds. With him he took Grades 7 and 8 ABRSM passing both with Distinction. He is a member of the Yorkshire Young Musicians Scheme based at the Leeds College of Music where he now studies with Claire Osborne. He is very appreciative of the support, help, guidance and enthusiasm provided by Nicholas Meredith and David Waters (teachers at Wakefield Grammar School Foundation).

He has recently been successful in obtaining a place in the National Youth Orchestra for the second year running, performing at prestigious venues such as the Royal Albert Hall (at the televised BBC proms) the Barbican in London and the Birmingham Symphony Hall. He is the former leader of Wakefield Youth Orchestra and is currently in City of Leeds Youth Orchestra. From September 2012 he will be studying at Chethams school of music in manchester for 2 years. His passion for folk music however continuous throughout his classical studies, attending folk courses (Alasdair Fraser), performing ceilidhs professionally and has recently been asked to send recordings to Mike Harding at radio 2 of the 5 piece folk band 'ceol' in which he is a part of. He knows that folk music will keep playing a big part in his life as a musician.

Dominic's parents are familiar faces in the music scene, both playing saxophone professionally. His dad Richard Ingham guests, playing soprano saxophone on Maggie West.
