Teaching since:

Hello! My name is Diana and I am an accomplished classical guitarist and pianist living in Brooklyn, New York. My experience has been established through a decade of private instruction under renown classical guitarist Dr. Lynn McGrath and pianist Stephen Montoya. I studied music, theory, and foreign language at the University of New Mexico and studied classical guitar at the North Carolina School for the Arts as one of the youngest students admitted at the age of 17. As a high school student I participated and competed in festivals across the U.S. including the Guitar Foundation of America (GFA) and with masterclass instruction from renowned guitarists and composers, David Russell and Ana Vidovic.

Within 10 years of dedicated study, I have been honored with awards of excellence from the National Honors Society of Guitar and recognized for her many accomplishments, including a performance with the highly acclaimed woman’s guitar ensemble ‘Presti Quartet,’ the first-ever woman elected as 1st chair in the New Mexico ALLSTATE Guitar Orchestra 2 consecutive years, and chosen as one of twelve international guitarists to represent music in education. I recently relocated to NYC from New Orleans where I taught private music lessons to children and young adults and immersed myself in the city of soul to study jazz music. Most recently I spent my summer abroad teaching piano lessons in Spanish to children in Spain. In addition to my solo and duet performances I have taught private music lessons since the age of sixteen with a mission to inspire aspiring musicians as a music educator and bring a life-long love of music to my students!
