9. Piano Lessons
"Diana came to me out of the blue and the timing was perfect
I had not touched my piano in three years; my favorite piano teacher had moved away, and somehow I thought he could never be replaced, and seemingly, just gave up!
(I might as well mention here that I am a woman of a certain age
.. well ok, Ill admit to being somewhere over 50!)
I had my first lesson with Diana almost exactly a year ago and although embarrassed at my rustiness, she quickly put me at ease and made things comfortable by bringing out some nice, easy teacher/student duets. Soon we were laughing together on the bench and I was actually having fun. I dont remember ever having FUN during piano lessons !
Diana has honed her considerable skills sharply over her teaching career, and you will know that from your first meeting. She is truly excited about teaching and I have learned more in this one year with her than four with my previous beloved teacher and - hardly do they count but the 2 others before him and one after.
It seems like I knew nothing but how to read, and during this year she has given me many lovely pieces to vary my practice and at the same time, increase my reading skills. I didnt know a thing about theory and honestly, was not even vaguely interested in knowing a thing!
Thats all changed. Diana can inspire even the most stubborn of us to want to know more to play more and best of all, for me - to actually have fun while were practicing, with her or without her.
I cannot say enough about how happy I am to be one of her students and I am recommending her for any age, at any stage! She will bring out the best in you.
