Professionalism and Versatility are what sets me apart from the many other classical guitarists on Gigmaster. I cover classical, pop, Celtic, and traditional guitar instrumentals.

Hi, and welcome to my page here on Gigmaster! If you are reading this you are probably thinking of hiring a guitarist or classical guitarist for a wedding or event, but there are many classical guitarists on this site, and they all sound good, so how do you choose? As nice as it might be to a have a classical guitarist for your event, you may not be sure about having ALL classical music. For instance, maybe classical music for your wedding ceremony, but contemporary/pop instrumentals for the cocktail hour may work better, or possibly you're not exactly sure what style you want to commit to at this point. If this is the case, I may be the right musician for you. In conjunction to a set of classical music, I also have a few hours worth of pop and non classical music, not just a few token pop tunes. It's not uncommon for someone to hire me to play classical music for a wedding ceremony, and then change their mind and decide to go with a mix of classical and pop, or even all pop tunes. One thing to note is that I also play a steel string guitar which has more sparkle to the tone, instead of a classical or nylon string guitar, which is why I have a little different, or contemporary sound.

If you read through a few reviews you may notice a reoccurring comment, "Don was very professional and very easy to work with," or "Don made the whole experience much less stressful." If you're planning an event, especially a wedding, you definitely don't want to be worrying about, or babysit, your vendors. I always arrive early to set up and sound check, and am dressed and ready to go at least a half hour before I start to play. I use two separate sound systems if I have to play a wedding ceremony and cocktail hour at different locations, so transition is quick and seamless. I've played hundreds of weddings and can help guide you and offer musical suggestions. I'd be happy to meet with you and go over ceremony music, and I can always work up an arrangement of a special song that you always envisioned being played as you walked down the aisle. There's a reason I have the most bookings of any classical guitarist in New England, my professionalism is second to none.


Mr. Sanni is a graduate of The New England Conservatory, with a degree in guitar performance. He was the winner of an international guitar competition, which led to a sponsorship through the Kramer guitar company. Don's playing and composing have been praised in "Guitar" magazine and he has written lessons for the Mel Bay Publication website, the largest publisher of guitar music in the world. Being that he is a full time, professional musician with over twenty years of performing experience, you can be sure of a quality performance. When not performing Don works as a guitar instructor in Nashua, NH where he teaches upwards of 50 students a week.

Don's instrumental CD - New England Soundscapes is also available. It's a collection of 14 originals blending pop, classical, and Celtic music. More info and audio clips are available on his website.

Don was fantastic! He was very professional and easy to work with. He accomodated all our requests and even learned a song for us. Many of our wedding guests commented on how beautiful the music was. Don's rendition of Vivaldi's Guitar Concerto, Bach's Jesu Joy, and Handel's Air from Water Music brought tears to many people's eyes (including ours!). We highly recommend Don for anyone who wants gorgeous classical music to accompany their special day. Don, thank you so much!!!!!!

Amazing! We booked Don for our wedding on 4/8/16. He responded promptly and was a breeze to work with. I was a little hesitant that he didnt know a song I wanted specifically played for the recessional (Queens 'You're My Best Friend') but since he owns his own music school I put my faith in him and was not disappointed! He learned the song in two days! I didnt know what song to choose for when the bridesmaids walked in, so Don suggested "I'll Be There" by Michael Jackson and I went for it as I trusted his judgement. It made me cry while we were lined up ready to walk up the aisle - beautiful! Do not hesitate to book Don and check out the song clips on his website!

On a scale of 1 to 10 Don was a 12. Everyone at my son's rehearsal dinner loved the music. Don is an extremely talented musician and I feel very fortunate that he played for us. He made the party an event that we will always remember. I am now trying to come up with an idea for a future party so that I can listen to him again. He really is an amazing artist.
