Carmine D''Amico - Official Biography(copyright 2009)

His skills have been showcased on stage, on records, in movie and television soundtracks, and on commercials that most of us have heard and taken for granted. 24 Grammy Awards validate that Carmine represents "THE school" of music, in which the ability to successfully play one''s part has been the key to outstanding performance. In today''s music world, where it is sometimes sufficient to merely know a few chords and licks in order to make a recording, Carmine stands out as a true student of music and an incredible talent whose flexibility and ability are legendary!
The Early Years

" ...Make each note a diamond." That''s what his father, Joseph D''Amico,jazz trumpet player,and working musician, said to him when he was seven years old. Carmine has never forgotten those words. He gave Carmine the choice of playing either the piano or the guitar. The senior D''Amico also told him not to be concerned about how many notes he played when he would solo, but that each note must have meaning. His father would sit with him every night, teaching Carmine various musical styles, reading skills, guiding him,and encouraging him to be the best musician he could https://www.tradebit.com D''Amico was a perfectionist and he instilled quality in https://www.tradebit.comut living with such high standards,Carmine states, "Sometimes it''s a burden, but it''s always motivating".

At age 9, Carmine recorded "Who Wears Short Shorts," and it became a big hit. He was then signed to ABC-Paramount Records(a subsidiary of Capitol Records)and went on tour. Performances included American Bandstand with Dick Clark, The Allen Fried Show, Soul Train, as well as concerts. Carmine ultimately wound up doing "50''s" hit records at the ages of 9, 10, and 11 with the Shirelles, Connie Francis,The Crests, Bo Diddley, Fabian, Frankie Avalon, Neil Sedaka, Carol King, The Royal Teens, Sessions with Teddy Randazzo, Sammy Fields, Jim Fogelsong, King Curtis, and his studio band.

When Carmine was in school, he won Academic scholarships to Private Grammar schools, high school and college. He graduated valedictorian of Most Holy Trinity High School with a 99.9 average, winning 10 academic medals with one exception.

With his father''s reluctant blessings,Carmine left medical school,transferred to Queens College and majored in music.
