I appreciate having a special rapport with each of my students. I'm known for my patience and flexibility, and for making the lessons enjoyable! In addition to enjoyment, I stress proper technique, beauty of sound, and musicality. We often play duets and/or have accompaniment for more fullness of sound.
I enjoy MAKING MUSIC with my students! I enjoy watching them make discoveries, progress in their playing, and enjoy the music that they produce. I've been teaching for over 25 years, and it's always fresh with each student.
After five years of lessions with Diane, she still makes learning fun and enjoyable in a warm and friendly environment. So I look forward to my weekly lessons where we start with the flute and wrap up the hour on the piano. When I'm struggling with a new concept or a difficult technique, Diane has the flexibility and patience to help me improve. In our first year, Diane showed a lot of patience! Diane motivates with praise and boosts my confidence while continuing to challenge me. Diane is excited about music and teaching -- it's a way of life, and the enthusiasm is contagious. When your teacher is excited about your lessons, you will be too.
Diane. She is patient, friendly, and warm. She has made learning piano an enjoyable experience for my children. Furthermore, they continually improve. Even on days when the kids don't feel like going to piano, they are always significantly happier after their lesson with Diane.
She is a very patient teacher, nice, also knows how to deal with young kids.
Diane is a dedicated teacher. She is very patient with my children. She is able to get my kids excited to play even when they don’t want to go, which is no small feat! She has also encouraged the kids to explore music they are interested in along with their regular lessons.
