Teaching Philosophy

Creating a love and understanding of music through your chosen instrument with an emphasis on the fundamentals of ear training, playing by ear, playing from lead sheets, and memorization.  Building a repertoire of songs that students like to play is my main objective.



Thank you very much Diana for teaching my daughter and continuing to inspire, instruct, celebrate and challenge her musically. We are so grateful that you are such a positive and important part of her life. Her love of piano and of you is beautiful to behold and I’m certain you have helped her to establish a lifelong love of music. Her favourite day is “piano lesson day” and she has asked me several times if she could skip school to play piano all day 😉 From the bottom of my heart – thank you.
