Elementary Music With Donna
I create fun and beautiful music to captivate and educate our youth.
I enjoy teaching music and making it a fun and fulfilling process for my students and my fellow music teachers.
Nothing inspires like a live performance. Contact Donna & Andy to arrange a concert.
Music ... gives a soul to the universe, wings to the mind, flight to the imagination ... and life to everything.
Our Music Speaks To All Ages
Our songs provide educational repetition that helps to develop language in children
As children age, our music grows with them and helps them build confidence
Growing up with music has been proven to assist in brain and learning development
We are excited to present this super fun song for young solo singers and junior elementary school choirs.

I have spent 34 years in Elementary Music Education. On this website, I hope to provide you with some insights into the awesome career of teaching Elementary School Music.
I am a composer as well as an educator. Over a 35 year period, I have composed and published over 300 selections for elementary classroom music programs, choirs, recorders and handbells.
Many of my compositions and resources are available from my publishing website Red Castle Publishing (It's going for a major website transformation as well)
Donna, I can’t begin to tell you how much I appreciate what you have done to bring these wonderful lessons/songs/ideas to us on this platform (FaceBook). This has brought renewed enthusiasm, confidence, and energy back into my teaching and I am so excited to revamp and add many of these songs to my curriculum for next year. I have tried out many of them this year and they are a big hit! You really have come into my world at the perfect time, just as I was beginning to feel a little burnt out. Thank you, Thank you, THANK YOU FROM THE BOTTOM OF MY HEART!

Donna is an exceptional teacher of music. She has written music for children. She understands them and provides a learning environment that is rich in experiences and activities. Donna is very creative when it comes to keeping their attention, by providing them with lots of fun things to do within the classroom. When it is time to go to music, they can’t get out of their home classroom fast enough. It is like a stampede! I am retired now, but taught with Donna for a number of years. She is an amazing person and has accomplished so much in the world of music.
