Composition, music software and music theory

Donald is a composer and has taught composition in three university music departments. He has taught composition courses at Croatia Drum Camp, has been an examiner in composition for the International Baccalaureate Organisation and has advised schools on the process of teaching composition. He teaches composition to individuals, leading them to develop musical ideas in any style.

He teaches introductory courses (usually 6 weeks) in composition-related music software, including Garageband, Logic and Digital Performer. These courses may lead to further work in composition using these programmes if desired.

Composition and music software lessons are for a minimum of 6, one hour lessons.

As an occasional teacher at RCM Junior Department, Donald teaches music theory to diploma standard.
