Get to know Donald

I have enjoyed and been involved in music for practically my entire life. Having a proficiency in music from an early age, I have had the privilege of singing, playing and conducting groups in considerably diverse situations from small churches to Carnegie Hall to Rock City's Christmas celebration. My education includes degrees in Church Music, Music Theory and Sacred Music. Although I was trained as a Classical pianist, most of my experience since college has been in church settings, serving as a music/worship pastor in Florida, Mississippi, Georgia and South Carolina. In addition, I had the opportunity to serve on the full-time music faculty at Lee University (Cleveland, TN) for 9 years. At Lee I taught piano, courses in music theory and church music, and directed two choral ensembles. My international experience has included teaching music at a Bible school in Germany, piano improvisation in Hermosillo, Mexico, and a week-long intensive course on worship at a Bible school in Moscow. Currently I serve as the Worship Pastor at the River of Life Church of God in Anderson and teach music theory online at Lee University..
