With your Coaching, I have been invited, by the Program Director, to participate in the MA Professional Voice Practice Program, at Royal Birmingham Conservatoire in the UK! The Invite came less than 24-hours after my Audition Vid was submitted! 😃 Thank you, Ms. Diana! You're awesome.

Diana is absolutely fabulous! I have worked with her in a classroom environment as well as one on one and I can honestly say they have been some of the most productive/supportive experiences training in my life! Diana is laid back yet encouraging - I never feel like I am being judged or must do something a certain way to appease her (which unfortunately I have felt while working under many other teachers prior). She allows you to be creative yet also guides you to make the strongest possible choices in your role. She truly cares about her students and will work with you to overcome an obstacles you face. Diana understands how to work with a beginner or a seasoned professional, seamlessly providing a comfortable atmosphere to do your best work. Do yourself a favor and work with Diana; she has a special gift to teach and connect with others. Most importantly, she will do her best to help you reach your own personal goals in acting whether you want to be a professional or not. If more acting teachers were like Diana there would probably be a lot more great actors! Thank you Diana for your dedication, support, and excellence you provide for your students!

All of Diana's extensive background as an actor & screenwriter is evident in the way she teaches. Her rich experience allows her to treat each student with an independent approach tailored to meet the most effective way each individual learns.
In addition, Diana truly cares about you, which allows you to safely open up to your own vulnerabilities & master over them.

Diana is kind, but she put's you through your paces. I have booked a lot of gigs after working with her. She helped me shape my college auditions too. I'm really so happy to recommend her.

One of the top teachers at SCR. I've always loved working with her.

My interaction with Diana is as an insightful and non- judgemental mentor for playwriting. I experienced her teaching in workshops at Breath of Fire- a writing cohort in Santa Ana. Her interactions with the students was inspiring as she created a safe space for students to express their creativity. Although I have not experienced her as an acting instructor, I can share Diana brings to the table a knowledge and respect for the art that I imagine would lend to a positive acting instructional experience.
