IRENE DIAMOND PIANO STUDIO
The Irene Diamond Piano Studio is a performance-oriented studio, designed to provide a comprehensive musical education in piano. REFERENCES UPON REQUEST The Studio, following Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophy that “any child can learn to play the piano,” accepts students age four and up. There are no entrance requirements or auditions for children. Admission to the Studio is dependent on the parents’ full understanding of their responsibilities and commitments in this form of musical education. Throughout the student’s intermediate level of study, traditional concepts and materials introduced include technique and selections from the vast piano repertoire, until ultimately the advanced students enjoy classical training from the standard literature for the piano.
Irene Diamond has both Masters and Bachelors of Music Degrees in Piano Pedagogy. At Southern Methodist University in Dallas, Texas, she taught in both the College Proficiency and Preparatory divisions. She recently spearheaded a chapter of the National Guild of Piano Teachers at Steinway Hall.
Irene Diamond has taught individuals and groups through a variety of methodologies, and has focused on the Suzuki approach to beginning instruction since 1985, but she doesn’t limit herself to any. She remains devoted to the future development of music. Irene Diamond is also a vocal coach. A pop singer and songwriter, Irene Diamond trains aspiring artists and actors. She has four children of her own who are all pursuing their musical dreams.
