Our In-Store Music Teachers

Donna Guillaume: Piano

DonnaDonna Guillaume believes that the study of music is food for the soul, nourishment for the brain, and can provide students with wonderful tools for developing learning skills. Her goal is to help students use their skills in playing piano as an outlet for creativity and leisure time pursuits, so that making music becomes a lifelong love.

Donna has taught music for over 25 years. As the wife of a U.S. Air Force bandsman, she has had the opportunity to live and teach in many locations, including Kentucky, Colorado, Georgia, Washington, Virginia, Japan, and now Illinois. She has taught private lessons and public school music at all grade levels, as well as having taught adults.

As a native of Kentucky, she earned her Bachelor of Music degree in Piano Performance at Northern Kentucky University and later added a Bachelor of Music Education degree at the University of Colorado in Boulder. She is nationally certified with the Music Teachers National Association. In the local association, Gateway Arch East Music Teachers Association, she has served as the President, Vice President, Librarian, and Parliamentarian of the organization.

Through the Illinois Music Teachers Association, her students are able to participate in Achievement in Music (AIM), which is a nationally recognized curriculum that "focuses on comprehensive musicianship skills for students. As students progress from beginning through advanced levels, they receive a rich training in performance and theory. Yearly examinations give students the incentive to set goals and experience the rewards of musical accomplishment." (from ISMTA website)

Donna Guillaume performs piano regularly at her church and has performed in numerous recitals and concerts, recently with the Oklahoma City Philharmonic in a concert in Edmond, Oklahoma.
