Donna grew up singing in her school choir, local church and even formed her own band at school!
As an adult she started taking lessons with a SLS teacher to strengthen her speaking and singing voice as she had began performing at local open mic nights and was also using her voice a lot in her day to work as a Sales Manager. In 2013 she joined 'Audacious Band' as a backing vocalist and performed most weekends. She appeared on 3 of their albums. This experience led her into teaching as she was asked to mentor the new singers joining the band. She was also asked to help with another local youth worship band 'Say What?' and soon after took a teaching job at Carol Godby's Theatre Workshop.
Donna now coaches a mixture of beginner and full time professional gigging artists, actors and speakers one to one, both at her home based studio as Legacy Vocal Coaching and at Heather Baker Singing Studios. Donna is currently collaborating with a local rap artist, working with the Youth Chorus of the Salvation Army's Northern Division and also leads worship at several churches in Manchester.
She joined the Institute for Vocal Advancement in July 2016 in order to expand her knowledge and gain a better understanding of the voice. She qualified as a Level 2 instructor in October 2019 and is now working towards her Level 3 certificate. She believes it is the educator's job to stir up passion and excitement in their students and she's ready and willing to do just that!
