Donny Christison is a classically trained vocalist and educator with a wide range of experience. They received their BA in psychology with a minor in music from Oregon State University where they were a founding member of acapella group Power Chord, performed in the OSU Opera, and toured the world with award-winning Bella Voce and OSU Chamber choirs, all while keeping up in the research lab as they studied how music affects the way humans feel and think.
During their research Donny became fascinated by the ways we grow and the physical, social, spiritual, and psychological benefits we gain by training our voices. Moving to Portland, Oregon to receive their Masters in Pastoral Ministry provided Donny with many new opportunities including leading worship bands for summer camps and conferences, singing and acting in independent film, and immersing themselves in every corner of the vibrant music scene the city has to offer.
Donny started teaching private voice lessons in 2011 and has loved every minute of it. They employ their technical knowledge of the voice and music theory while blending it with their passion for the transformative properties of singing from the heart. Donny’s students most enjoy their ability to support them as they find the unique and powerful voice that lies within and let it shine through.
