Miss Donna Jordee (specialty one-on-one singing)

 
Donna is a professionally recognised singer, songwriter & performer both in the Sydney music scene and internationally - with affiliates in New York City & London.
With now over 17 years teaching experience, Donna incorporates all her industry expertise and experience into her school and her classes. 

 

Most recently, Donna was invited to be part of the channel 7 new show 'All Together Now' as one of 'the 100' judges. In the judging panel, she worked along side many industry professionals such as Ronan Keating, Rhonda Burchmore and more. 


Donna has studied at some of Sydney's elite performing arts schools - including The Mc Donald College, Brent St, and is a performance & vocal major honours graduate of The Australian Institute of Music. 

Donna has extremely broad stage experience globally and has worked alongside many industry artists, musicians, producers & songwriters. She has been the support act for acts such as Jagged Edge, Invertigo and Stevie B. 

As an APRA member, Donna is also respected for her songwriting and has received awards such as winning the 2008 Australian Songwriters Conference songwriting competition. She was also one of the very few selected to perform a set of her originals at the 2012 SONG SUMMIT LIVE which included special guests such as Missy Higgins & Joel Madden.

Donna's songwriting also took her to spend several months in London to complete writing & recording her album 'Main Course' (single available on iTunes). Here she worked in Amy Winehouse's personal studio and was even fortunate enough to meet the extremely talented late artist.  

Donna takes each of her classes seriously, believing in vocal precision and performance stature. She has even taught vocal lessons for Sony artists including Elen Levon.


Donna has an extensive dance background that started from the age of 3. Over the years, she stretched her love of dance into hip hop, jazz, lyrical, tap and ballet - including Elementary RAD Syllabus level by the age of 11. 

Apart from being well rounded on the stage, Donna has vast experience behind the scenes too as well as working as a co-producer and show host of the pilot series 'Keeping Up With The Kids'.
