Overview:
I attended Berklee College of Music in Boston prior to moving to Los Angeles.  There, I would work with some industry greats like Richard Druz, Lenny Greene and Frank Zappa.  I absorbed their skills, talents and techniques.  After singing with many bands in the area, I found gospel music and joined a church with Pastor Rowena Frisco in Inglewood.  Frisco taught me what gospel music was all about and I have carried it with me ever since. I returned to the East Coast to complete my  formal education at New York University where I received my BA in music performance. I formed a self titled band and toured the mid-Atlantic region performing a mixture of blues, rock, rnb, soul, gospel and jazz.  Hoping to reach a larger audience, I wrote, arranged, and produced my solo debut, What I Got To Say.  I am as dedicated to teaching as I am to performance.  I create an environment of support and encouragement allowing artists to feel nurtured.  I have a holistic approach to singing; it encompasses the mind, body and soul.  I welcome student participation and input during a lesson.  Instead of holding every student to the same measure, I chart success on attainment of your goals.  I recognize that every artist is an individual so success is dependent on individual goals challenged and attained.  
EXPERIENCE
I have been teaching for 15 years.  I am primarily a voice instructor as this is my principle instrument, but I do teach piano and guitar as well, with an emphasis on songwriting.  I feel that my ability to teach is demonstrated in the performance and progress of my students.  I have a passion to teach music as I believe that it is and amazing form of personal expression at any level.
METHODS USED
Each student learns in a different way so I tailor each lesson plan for that individual. I do have a format with teaching voice that follows tradition - we work on voice exercises and then repetoire.  I use Hal Leaonard, Alfred, and Mel Bay books for all instruments.
LESSON STYLE
I have a passion to teach because it's what makes me that much better of a musician and performer.  I love watching my students progress and grow into their own.

Diana has been wonderful!! She has been encouraging and supportive. Learning to play the piano for the first time as an adult if certainly challenging but I have had success after success under Diane's guidance.

Diane's wonderfully encouraging attitude and simple approach to singing is exciting and super beneficial. I've seen massive amounts of improvement in only three rehearsals.

Diane has done a great job with our daughter, 13. She looks forward to her lessons and is excited when she starts new songs. Diane has been great with her and we highly recommend her as a voice instructor.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
