Short biography
Author, church musician, and classical guitarist Donn LeVie Jr. lives in Austin, Texas with his wife Jeanette. Donn writes books on sacred music and classical guitar topics, and is a sought-after presenter and speaker. Incorporating live classical guitar with nearly every speaking opportunity makes for highly a engaging and memorable experience for all audiences. His previous book is entitled, It's All About HYMN: Essays on Reclaiming Sacred and Traditional Music for Worship(Kings Crown Publishing, 2008).

A native of Gloucester, Massachusetts Donn grew up in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida, where graduated with a B.S. in Geology from Florida Atlantic University. He recently completed the master's certificate program in Christian Apologetics from Biola University.

Donn began his career as a research geological oceanographer for NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Labs in Miami, Florida for three years before moving to Houston to work as a geologist for Phillips Petroleum Company and pursuing an M.S. degree in Geochemistry from the University of Houston. He was also part-time adjunct faculty lecturer at the University of Houston Downtown College, Department of Natural Science and Mathematics. In addition, Donn was among the first group of qualified applicants for mission specialist positions with NASA's space shuttle program in the early 1980s.

After the oil industry crash of 1986, Donn transitioned to the high-tech industry, working in marketing and technical communications positions for microprocessor leaders Motorola, Intel Corporation, and Marvell Semiconductor.

Throughout his professional careers, Donn continued to perform in various bands. His return to studying and performing classical guitar in 2000 has been the most rewarding for him, through his studies with Dr. Nicholas Ciraldo, Dr. Adam Holzman, and Dr. Matthew Hinsley. Today, Donn's music focus is on performing classical guitar arrangements of sacred music, traditional hymns, and inspired classical music for houses of worship around the country as well as other organizations and conferences.
