I have been teaching music for 23 years, both in private lesson and classroom settings. I have a Bachelor's degree in Music Education from Shenandoah University & Conservatory and I have experience teaching all age groups, from age 3 through senior adults, and every age in between. I enjoy teaching students with a variety of abilities and backgrounds, including students with special needs. While I generally use specific curriculum materials, I can also tailor that curriculum to the individual needs of every student. I try to keep things fun by incorporating music learning games into the lessons and I encourage my students to try to step out of their musical comfort zones and try new things. I enjoy seeing a student's confidence grow as they learn and be creative! Every student is capable of learning something about music and being successful at it!

My daughter loves learning from Donna and Donna is very patient and works well over Zoom,
Donna is professional and an excellent teacher. She quickly assessed what I needed from our first few lessons. I am excited about the progress I have already made and look forward to each lesson. Thank you Donna for helping me get back to basics without feeling like I'm starting over.
Donna is super kind and encouraging, and she is also a great teacher.
