What the Students Say

"As a true adult beginner, I was very nervous about trying to learn how to play the piano. Dina has been fantastic at making me comfortable and is such a great teacher. I never thought I could learn to play so quickly. I highly recommend having Dina as an instructor." -Matt

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")!
