Composer, Elementary Music Specialist
Donna is always on the lookout for song-writing ideas. Her experiences as a mother of three boys have provided lots of inspiration! Her boys are now grown up, but her five grandchildren and the children from her elementary school music classroom have continued to be inspiring character studies for Donna’s compositions.
Donna has written over 500 songs including repertoire for solo singers, choirs, and school groups, as well as songs for recorder, violin, handbells, piano, and organ. Donna’s music has found a place in the hearts and music libraries of music teachers and students around the world.
