About Donna G.

I am thrilled to be joining the teaching ranks of TakeLessons! Having just recently relocated from Lansing, Michigan in order to pursue a DMA in Voice Performance at Shenandoah Conservatory in Winchester, VA, voice specialist and instructor Donna G. is excited to work with a new crop of singers. While Donna lived in Lansing, MI, her voice studio facilitated in preparing amateur and professional singers for music and theatre auditions and performances for more than twelve years in the Lansing area. The goal of her voice studio is to promote vocal arts and current activities in the various public schools and communities represented in the studio. Donna also enjoys playing piano, vocal coach accompanying, working with diverse singing styles from classical to musical theatre and jazz/pop, songwriting, and designing individual curricula that allow her students to express themselves in their individually unique ways. Donna looks forward to working with new students from the Winchester area.

I can bring music books/repertoire. If the student wishes to drive to my home studio, I can provide a piano as well as a large vocal and piano music library. *** Specialties *** ~Certified Lovetri Somatic Voicework (sm) at Shenandoah University Summer Vocal Music Institute ~specializing in opera vocal styles as well as ability to cross-train voice for musical theatre and pop/rock styles ~ability in vocal coach accompanying on piano/keyboard ~lyricist and songwriter for rock bands over the past 20 years ~musical director for musical theatre productions for 15 years
