Overview

Hello! I have been playing the drums since I was 3 years old and have always loved to share my joys of playing music. I have been fortunate to study under the best performers in the world and have applied their knowledge into my lesson plans for each student.

I am a graduate of the prestigious Berklee College of Music in Boston where I studied many styles of music including Rock, Pop, Funk, Blues, Jazz, Latin, and Brazilian, as well as music theory courses from classical theory to advanced jazz theory. I have years of experience teaching students as Director of Percussion at the Woodward Academy, South Cobb High School, and as well as teaching privately.

With each student I create a unique lesson plan that aligns to their goals and current skill level. Lessons are taught so that the process can be ENJOYED; music needs to make us happy both in creating and listening. Music theory and concepts are taught alongside technique and "chops" to ensure a well-rounded musician is formed.

This guy is the real deal. I'm a very experienced intermediate level drummer looking to take my skill to the next level. He listened to me play for a few minutes and immediately developed a game plan. Donnie is an incredibly nice guy, and an exceptionally good teacher. I took a chance on him since he didn't have many reviews, but I'm glad I did. A+, would definitely recommend Donnie to anyone.

I've known Donnie for a long time.... I like to call him my colleague, but really , you might say I have learned some of my own most valuable lessons, and insights through his extraordinary Talen,t coupled with an extraordinary ability to communicate helping students their learning needs, concisely explaining Concepts , and through complete Mastery of his crafts, I would say that he would be your best option as far as any musical instructor, especially available here online... he outo be teaching in an Ivy League school. I could go on, but his credentials are obviously as good as it gets. Go ahead and stop searching and just hire this guy
