Personal Description:

Diane is a working musician from Nottingham, United Kingdom. Predominantly a drummer, she also performs as a singer, pianist, guitarist and bassist. In addition to a 1st Class Music degree with the Music Technology prize from the University of Nottingham, and a brief stint at BIMM London, she has studied with Virgil Donati (Allan Holdsworth) and Chad Wackerman (Holdsworth, Frank Zappa), in addition to attending over a dozen clinics including Steve Vai, Gavin Harrison (King Crimson, Porcupine Tree), Matt Garstka (Animals as Leaders), Matt Halpern and Nolly Getgood (Periphery), and Todd Sucherman.

After years composing and producing in bands, as well as launching several successful solo projects, Diane also began scoring for film and video games. Her music has been described as intelligent, amorphous, and uncanny, and will soon be featured in the debut title from Inspiratio Studio.

When not rehearsing with bands, writing, composing or recording, Diane is reliably honing her craft on a drum practice pad for an LTCL Drum Performance qualification, and considering a Music Masters Qualification – but she always has time for one more project!

Tutoring Experience:

Diane has been teaching for over 10 years. In addition to local in-person students, she teaches students remotely in North and South America, and across Europe. Her students cover all age groups, professions and skill levels.

Her reviews suggest great critical acclaim for her 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 students, across all age-groups, disciplines, skill levels, goals, and interests!

Tutoring Approach:

Diane ensures that each student leaves every lesson with a great understanding of not just their instrument and the process of playing it, but also the physiological and psychological processes involved in developing their craft, so that every student is confidently able to create and execute their own plan to build their pathway into professional musicianship. Students don't just excel at their instrument - they also gain an excellent level of self-confidence and freedom of expression that they carry with them in all that they do, both in and out of music.
