Dr. Diana Thacher


"Education is a lifelong journey, not a mere preparation for life." This philosophy guides Dr. Thacher, a dedicated educator with over 20 years of experience, who has taught students from beginners to advanced levels, ranging in age from 4 to 65. She considers herself a "forever student," believing that every lesson is a two-way street: "I learn as much from my students as they learn from me."


Diana has worked at numerous music schools and served as the Head of the Piano Department at Fresco Arts Academy in Boise, Idaho. She takes immense pride in the achievements of her students, with many accepted to prestigious institutions such as the Boston Conservatory, Berklee College of Music, San Francisco University, Royal Academy of Music, and Seoul School of Music. She also holds deep admiration and respect for her adult students, each a specialist in their own field, who find the time and inspiration to learn a new art form.


Dr. Thacher maintains a private teaching studio where she coaches both instrumentalists and vocalists. She feels privileged to be a part of her students' musical journeys and remains committed to fostering their growth and passion for music.
