Singer, songwriter, and composer
His voice stems from a love of music deep inside of him. To truly find out the origin of this passion you must first look back at his roots. He was born in Atlanta Ga to very humble beginnings. Through his childhood struggles, his faith and love of music became the outlet he needed. The first memory he has of singing was at the age of 3 when he sang “I Wanna Dance with Somebody” by Whitney Houston on the kitchen table; using a chicken bone as the microphone. Dontarius became a leader at a young age which ultimately lead him to start a gospel choir at Stephenson high school entitled “Inspirational Voices” which still exists today. He has worked for various artists such as, former Destiny’s Child member Kelly Rowland. As well as, renowned gospel artists; William Murphy, Valerie Boyd, and Angelina Christie just to name a few. Dontarius is known by the people that love him as authentic, humorous, extremely talented, and anointed. He is one of the few that has it all: vocalist, musician, writer, teacher, and motivator. Currently, Donatritus is recording his solo album and contracting out to a variety of venues and functions such as, universities, churches, and, private gigs alike. Dontarius will challenge us with songs of love, pain, real life issues, and inspiration. That will captivate listeners, compel us to shape are own lives and pursue our dreams.

"To exist is normal, To live is ok, To be alive..........."
I can't begin to tell you the joy I have in teaching music. It’s right up there with my favorite food. (Pizza if you were wondering). On a serious note my passion stems from my love for people and relationships. Over the years I have developed a heart for teaching not only music but so much more. If I had to describe my teaching methods in three words they would be exciting, worthwhile, and life changing. (Ok so technically that's four words : ) You will learn not only how to sing better. You will learn so much more. Can't wait to start this journey with you.

My Teacher is Awesome...
His care and passion makes me feel very comfortable. Especially when he pushes me to sing within my comfort zone. His teaching technique is awesome. I think he's a very humble teacher, wth alot of patience which makes you feel like you can achieve your goals. I would definitely recommend this instructor to anyone who may have lost their love for music and would like to regain their passion or just need the right coach to get you started. He's got the skills!
