• About Me

    Donna Crownover Jackson
    Upper Merion Area Middle School
    Room #B 209
    5th - 8th Grade General Music
    I have been teaching at UMASD since 1987, and have served for 19 years as the Lower House Band Director, 8 years as the Caley Band Director, and 4 years as the 5th Grade Band Teacher while also teaching Upper House General Music classes.  
    This year I will be in the Middle School Music Classroom, teaching grades 5 through 8.  I believe that sound teaching and mastering of the "basics" are the quintessential building blocks for success in any classroom.
    I strive to make music accessible, understandable, and enjoyable for those who are musicians, and more importantly, for those who are not.  It is my goal to help students see the undeniable role that music plays in all our lives, and to become life-long supporters and consumers of music and the arts.
