    ~Diane's Piano Studio~
    My home studio is located in Sugarhouse. I have been teaching piano and music theory for 15 years. I enjoy teaching children of all levels, beginning at age 6. The main focus in my studio is to find joy and relaxation in music. My students are encouraged to appreciate their musical talents, and to develop lasting practicing habits. They receive experienced instruction in music theory while learning the correct way to study music and play the piano. I use the Piano Pronto method books, which move at a fun, accelerated pace, and are included with tuition. Each lesson is supplemented with applicable theory and technique.
    Currently accepting daytime (homeschool) students only.

    Diane is an excellent piano teacher
    by Monica F. on April 13, 2015
    My 7 year old daughter, Charlotte, has been taking piano lessons from Diane since she was 5. I have been impressed with how much she has progressed because although she does not practice for more than 15 minutes a day she is still learning, a lot. Diane has been okay and supportive of us not forcing Charlotte to practice more. We feel like she is still very young, and as long as she stays interested and enjoys lessons she will continue to learn and love music. Diane has a natural ability of connecting with and teaching children in a way that is firm, yet gentle, and very supportive and encouraging. She incorporates fun games and activities that are very helpful in keeping her students attention and interest. I would dare say that Charlotte enjoys her piano lessons mostly because she adores Diane. A win-win in my eyes. Diane is highly recommended by me.

    My 7 year old daughter has been taking lessons from Diane for 8 months now. She has learned so much! The material is age appropriate and is the right balance between theory and instruction. My daughter loves to go to lessons because Diane makes it fun to learn to play the piano! Now my other kids want to take piano too! I highly recommend Diance as a piano instructor!

    My 10 year old daughter has been studying with Diane for over a year and really enjoys her lessons. Diane makes each lesson fun, productive and enjoyable, incorporating both music and theory into the lesson. Diane is patient and very helpful when my daughter struggles to learn a new concept or song; I wish she could make house calls! I highly recommend Diane!

    Excellent instructor!

    My 7 yr old daughter has been studying with Diane for 6-8 months now and loves her lessons. Diane has made every lesson enjoyable with piano focused games and gentle reaffirming praise and instruction. My daughter has a difficult time staying focused but she always does for Diane. We will continue to remain her student as we've never met another teacher or instructor as fantastic as she is!

    My 10 year old daughter is in her 4th year of piano with Diane. She is an excellent piano teacher and always has fun and exciting ways for her to learn new things. She teaches both music and theory and is patient and kind in her methods. She has piano recitals twice each year and monthly group lessons where they study different composers. I highly Recommend her services.

    I have a 10 year old and 7 year old both taking piano lessons from Diane. Lessons are engaging and my kids both enjoy going each week. She makes it fun by incorporating contests and games. There is an optional group lessons every month, which my kids like going to as well.

    My daughter has been getting lessons from Diane for about 2 and a half years as she absolutely loves it. I don't remember her ever cancelling a session without proper notice and she is very accommodating when we have to reschedule. My daughter can read just about any sheet music and her piano playing is getting better as a result. I highly recommend her!
