Diana is an excellent musician. She has studied under very fine masters in Russia . I have seen her in many concerts as a soloist, part of an ensemble and in an orchestra. Not only is she a fine musician but also a very good teacher. I highly recommend taking flute lessons from a very gifted artist.

Diana is an excellent instructor! Patient, encouraging and super good at explaining. She took my 11 year old daughter from not being able to play a single note and not knowing how to read music to playing pieces and reading notes at top speed really fast! And my daughter always looks forward to her next lesson with Ms. Diana! She sends a detailed homework assignment after each lesson as well as a monthly progress report. My daughter loves her lessons and Ms. Diana takes great care to make practicing not just effective but fun! She has a great understanding of children and how to get them engaged.

Diana was a super kind and friendly teacher. My son is 9 years old and he really enjoyed his first lesson. My son didn't play for 6 months plus and he wanted to get back into it. She asked many questions beforehand, in order to get him on the correct level. There are more lessons to be followed in the upcoming weeks with her.

Diana really helped me with tone and with correcting my finger tension. Starting flute again after 30 years, I remembered the theory but Diana showed me how to play more smoothly, connect the notes with better phrasing and understand the musicality of the whole piece.

She gives useful exercises for embouchure to get a much better sound and helps one enjoy working with the details that hold one back.

Diana showed me what to appreciate in recordings of masters like Galway and Pahud, so I enjoy the exercises that will improve in my playing.

I have also seen her coach groups of intermediate players to blend together for ensemble pieces.

Definitely I would recommend Diana as being a patient and pleasant teacher to work with.

Diana is first rate and helps me a lot each lesson. There is nothing like personal, Individual instruction, especially for embouchure difficulties. She has access to practice books to down load that are excellent. She is always looking for warm ups and etudes that make the most of your practice time. I highly recommend her.

I was really dumb in flute but she helped me a lot to improve in many areas. She has patiences to teach people like me who are not confident in playing.
I heard about her from one of my friend who studied in Russia’s prestigious university and she also took lessons from her many times. She is really a rare person with a great talent at very young age. I would recommend to every age group.

Diana is a truly knowledgeable, inspiring and passionate instructor! I am so happy to have had the opportunity to take classes from her. When I first came to class I was a complete beginner but she patiently worked with me through the basics of playing, gradually giving me more and more challenging material, so that after a year of classes with her I went from a total beginner to being able to read music, understand theory and be able to play pieces quite well! She is kind, patient, explains very well, and is incredibly knowledgeable in her field. She sends detailed notes after every lesson as well as recordings, and check up emails to get you inspired to practice throughout the week. I was always looking forward to my next flute lesson with her and would never dream of going to any other instructor!
