Introduction: I’ve been a professional cellist and teacher for 40 years. I teach cello from a classical as well as non-classical perspective. I am the cellist of an award-winning World Music ensemble but I have also performed, toured and recorded with internationally acclaimed, Grammy-winning symphony orchestras. I find a way to connect with each of my students, identifying learning styles, and strengths as well as areas that need improvement. I achieve results and help students become the best musicians they can be. I am kind and encouraging, knowledgable, insightful, articulate and fun. Learning to play the cello should be joyful, and I try to make sure it is!

As a college student looking back over my childhood endeavours with music I can honestly say that Dianne was one of the pivitol people who changed the course of my cello ambitions. Her knowledge of western art music and how to spin a beautiful sound are, of course, well rounded and foundational. She gives advice on this front gently and with the frequent use of artful metaphors. What makes Dianne a true gem, though, is her expertise with the world of music beyond classical; improvisation, composition, avant-garde rhythms. I am continually amazed by her work with Flanco Fusion and so grateful to have a teacher with such otherworldly experience. I think my favorite part about lessons with Dianne is how much agency she gives her students. We are able to take our playing in a direction we are interested in while still getting the very best support and instruction. I became interested in composition and she was endlessly helpful and encouraging about the pieces I created. If you want a musical experience full of care, beauty, and novelty then look no further than Dianne Betkowski, she is truly one of a kind! - Maeve Wilder, cello student

Anyone who gets to study with Dianne is very lucky. Her artistry as a cellist is central to her teaching. She challenges each student to work at a high level, while at the same time, she is sensitive to the needs of each student and encourages them, with great kindness.
