What the Students Say

"Hi Dina. I want to take this time to thank you for the incredible piano lessons you've been doing with Akshath. Your calm gentle manner and your patience are wonderful gifts. These attributes are what make you a great teacher. Once again, thank-you for sharing your talent with Akshath." -Meena

For the past fourteen years, I've taught piano lessons to students of varying ages, abilities, and learning styles. My background in the elementary school general music classroom has greatly informed my philosophy of music education.

I received several awards and a Bachelor of Music in Music Education from The University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2004. Born and raised in Charlotte, I'm proud to live here with my husband and dachshund ("wiener dog")!
