donald tharp on bassMy name is Donald Tharp and I have taught Applied Music/Guitar for VISD since 2007. I have enjoyed playing guitar since I was a child and have helped others through private instruction since I was in college.  I have a degree in Music and Business Administration as well as a Master of Divinity degree and Doctor of Ministry degree. Those were needed in my first career as a Pastor for the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ).
Having served 7 churches in 4 states over a 30-year period, I retired from the pastoral ministry in 2007 to complete my teacher certification and begin full-time teaching Guitar for VISD. I also have over 15 years' experience leading praise teams in local churches.
It gives me great joy to be able to share my love of music with students and I am thankful for this opportunity to teach.
