I believe learning should be fun and teaching should be wheeled by the philosophy:
I am committed to providing rigorous curricula that promote critical thinking and creativity. I also strive to instill self-discipline and accountability amongst my students and actively communicate the importance of success in music, since success in music will ultimately afford success in life!

He was personable and patient with me being a beginner. Highly recommend!
My son really enjoys his drumming lessons with Donnie! Fun to work with! Definitely recommend!
Mr Bell is tough but fair. If you want to learn and get better go with him. If you’re in it to goof around then this is not the guy for you.
I like how Mr. Donnie makes games to help you learn. They’re so much fun!
