About Donnie E.

Hi! My name is Donnie and I can't wait to meet you! I've been teaching private lessons for 5 years and have loved helping my students, Kevin, Andrew, and Avery (all of whom have left 5-star reviews) reach their goals! I strive to not only give my students exercises and riffs to learn, but to teach them the reasoning and Music Theory behind those notes and chords. My teaching style is committed to showing you "how" to learn and not just throwing various songs, scales, and techniques at you. I will be firm and provide you with the accountability you need to move forward. My favorite artists (many of whom have songs that are taught as part of my curriculum) are The Beatles, Metallica, Santana, Stevie Ray Vaghan, Nirvana, Green Day, Johnny Cash, The Eagles, Avenged Sevenfold, and many more! Additionally, in 2017 I was given Takelesson's "Student Favorite" award. This means that I have consistently ranked in the top 15% of Takelessons teachers based upon reviews, number of students, and student retention! Guitar has been a love of mine since I was 9 years old and I enjoy helping other people realize their full potential! I have training in standard notation and tablature, and I am equipped with the resources necessary to get you going quickly! I graduated from Liberty University in 2018 with a Bachelors in Business Administration degree. Each week, I teach around 30-35 students! I am looking forward to helping you reach your goals! Please feel free to use the "Ask a question" feature, I will reply to you as soon as possible.

Dedicated and knowledgeable Donnie is a great teacher if you are looking to learn guitar. Not only he can play really well and inspire you, but he's able to share actionable tips and feedback in a way that a beginner can easily grasp. While you would have to put the practice time outside of lessons, there's no doubt that Donnie makes the journey smother and more fun. I'd totally recommend him to anybody who's looking to get started or continue with their guitar journey.

Calm, knowledgeable, experienced, interested guitar instructor. My son studied with Donny for over 3 years. The experience has been nothing short of amazing. Donny has always kept lessons interesting, kept progressing, was engaging and knows how to truly teach young adults. Thank you!

I have been learning from Donnie for 6 months. He is patient and encourages you even when learning becomes a challenge. If you are looking for an excellent tutor, look no further.
