All three of my children had the distinct privilege to have had Donna Schwartz help shape and support the base of their music education . From alto sax, to flute, to bass, her enthusiasm, encouragement and wealth of knowledge has remained a constant from their elementary school beginnings onwards through high school. She's serious and passionate about both music and teaching and has a special gift for engaging the children with kindness, patience and great humor. She expects greatness and her students succeed tremendously. Priceless.
