Julie Donald

I have been a private music teacher for over 30 years and I am based in the Carrington/Sherwood area of Nottingham. I am fully DBS checked and teach children from the age of 4 upwards through to mature students. Students come to me for lessons.

I have lots of experience within the music industry and first started out working at the old Carlsboro shop in Hockley Nottingham (all those years ago !!) giving advice and buying and selling musical instruments. At the time Carlsboro was the main music shop in Nottingham and I got to meet at some point most of the finest musicians from Nottingham and all the surrounding areas and also all the touring bands, I can still remember selling to ‘The Red hot Chilli Peppers’
You would be surprised at how many a times a parent has turned up for an initial meeting with their children regarding music lessons and have said to me are you Jools from Carlsboro ?

I have been a performer from the age of 15 when I used to go out gigging firstly with my brother and sister around the pubs and clubs in Nottingham, then I fronted various bands, even a punk band (pink hair as well) to working extensively on the club circuit in a duo with my husband (Paul Laine) whilst still always teaching.

I have also worked extensively within private day nurseries and infant schools doing music awareness and also within the secondary school environment as a music teacher/head of music.

I listen to and appreciates all genres of music but have a particular love for the Theatre, over the years I have seen a multitude of popular shows with my favourite being ‘Les Miserables’ and ‘Miss Saigon’

My main objective when teaching students is to have fun, students should be totally relaxed and feel comfortable within the whole environment so they can enjoy their lesson. Music should be fun.

All lessons here at Julie Donald’s Music School are undertaken either by myself, Paul Donald (who also works under the stage name of Paul Laine) or our son Jack Donald ALCM DipLCM
