Donna remembers starting her first piano lessons with great excitement and her first piano teacher provided a fantastic musical education, always teaching with a love of music, sense of fun, and a joy of teaching. Mrs. Lohrenz was an inspiration for 12 years, and continues to influence Donna’s teaching. Whether students are beginners or seasoned players, lessons are individually tailored to each student’s ability, musical interests, and personal goals. Recitals in December and June provide an opportunity for students to showcase their hard work and develop confidence. A reception celebrating the performances follows with special treats for all performers. Students can prepare for Royal Conservatory exams, festivals, or just enjoy learning the piano.
Donna has a large well-equipped home studio with grand piano, keyboard, and a comfortable waiting area with CD lending library.
