I've been a professional private music teacher for 5 years, and a part-time teacher for closer to a decade.
I'm able to offer lessons on guitar, piano and drums, as well as more in-depth lessons on musicianship, songwriting and composition, music theory, recording and audio engineering.
My reviews suggest great critical acclaim for my approach, which has so far maintained a 100% exam pass rate among students taking grade exams, and a fantastic level confidence and enthusiasm for all of my students, across all age-groups, disciplines, skill levels, goals, and interests!
I charge £25/hour, including remote lessons via Skype, Zoom or Discord.
I am fully DBS (Disclosure and Barring Service) checked, and able to provide this information on request.

First Tutors Music Tutor Hunt
Young learners starting piano lessons
"What a great teacher! Perfect for my 8 year old granddaughter! Kept her engaged throughout and has endless patience. She can't wait to go again next week"
"Diane is very reliable, patient, trustworthy. She never cuts the lesson short. She will rather stay couple of minutes over time to make sure my daughter knows what to practice for next time. She is very professional but friendly and approachable. My daughter really likes her. She never makes her feel bad if she makes a mistake. I am very happy with the work she is doing."
Experienced Musician learning a new instrument
"Diane is a natural teacher. The lessons are intelligently planned and engaging. I'm very impressed!"
Adult Producer reaching the next level
"Diane is a very friendly, knowledgable tutor who has a vast amount of experience within many areas of music. She has a great teaching style which puts you at ease, whilst also providing a very clear structure for learning. Since starting guitar, piano and music production lessons with Diane, I have found her musicianship to be second to none and she's able to answer absolutely any question that I may have. I'd highly recommend Diane to anyone looking to become a better musician - from beginners right through to advanced players."
"Diane is excellent. Simple as that. She is friendly, approachable and very professional. She knows exactly what she is talking about regarding composition. I am an electronic music producer, and she catered to my needs perfectly and gave me a solid foundation to progress. I would recommend anyone writing electronic music to have lessons with Diane, although she will be able to help with any genre."
