Diana is a classical guitar hobbyist and former Suzuki student (piano and guitar) who teaches 11th grade American Literature at Port of Los Angeles High School. The school does not have a music program, so Diana created Guitar Club. She keeps donated guitars and an upright piano in her classroom, which becomes a music studio for any student who wishes to jam when English class is not in session. Diana had her Guitar Club students put on a concert last May, and beginners were able to play the basic chords for “Let It Be” while more advanced players did solo pieces.

Diana has been working with students from kindergarten through community college since 2008, and she has a California teaching credential in secondary English. She also trained with Andrea Cannon and can teach Suzuki Guitar Book 1.

Diana has studied classical guitar privately with David Margolis and Matthew Greif. She is in the Orange County Guitar Circle and has performed in their member showcases. Diana also studied classical piano privately with Veridiana Mina and Sister Marie Vincent Llamzon.
