Title: Elementary School Music Teacher, Private Vocal Instructor, Music Studio Owner
Bio: Diana loves working with kids of all ages from her private teaching locations in Los Gatos and Almaden and focuses on figuring out how to best teach and encourage each individual student to shine in their his/her own way on one or a combination of the following: Voice, Piano, Guitar, Bass Guitar, Ukulele, and Songwriting. Students can expect to learn how to read, write and understand the language of music (music theory), build a repertoire filled with songs from different musical genres, memorize chord progressions to play in an ensemble, and figure out what direction to go in their own personal future musical endeavors. Diana also teaches music and movement in public schools to grades TK-5.
In addition to her passion for teaching music, Diana has performed on some amazing stages. She started playing piano when she was four and her love of music has since expanded into vocals, bass guitar, guitar, ukulele, and songwriting. She played keyboard and bass guitar in a variety of projects and performed at notable venues such as AT&T Ballpark Stadium opening for a SF Giants game, Bill Graham Civic Auditorium during Comedy Central's Collossal Clusterfest 2017, The Great American Music Hall (SF), House of Blues Boston, Hard Rock Lake Tahoe, Herrah's Reno Hotel & Casino, Cargo Concert Hall (Reno), Sweetwater Music Hall (Mill Valley), Silo's (Napa), Harlow's Restaurant & Nightclub (Sacramento), Bimbo's 365 Club (SF), Slim's (SF), The Chapel (SF), Club Fox (Redwood City), The Ritz (San Jose), Flynn's Cabaret & Steakhouse (Felton), and NAMM 2015 (L.A). Bass Player Magazine, Bass Musician Magazine, and the Women’s International Music Network (WIMN) ran stories on her in May of 2017.
