"The Art of Teaching is the art of assisting discovery..." -Marc Van Doren
"What the Teacher is, is more important than what he teaches..." - Karl Meninger
Dr. Diana Thacher
We give what we have, but how we give is up to us. The knowledge teachers share will always be shaped by who they are, and students will remember how teachers made them feel as they were learning.
With more than 20 years of experience, Dr. Thacher is a dedicated teacher who has taught students from beginners to advanced levels between the ages of 4-65. She still passionately believes that education is not preparation for life but life itself, therefore considering her own self a "forever student".
Diana has worked in numerous music schools and served as a Head of Piano Department at Fresco Arts Academy (Boise, Idaho). She is proud to count some of her students to be accepted to colleges and universities such as Boston Conservatory, Berkley College of Music, San Francisco University, Royal Academy of Music and Seoul School of Music. She also is very proud of her adult students for whom she holds a deep admiration and respect - each of them a specialist in their own field who on top of that, find time and inspiration to learn a new art from.
Currently Dr. Thacher maintains a private teaching studio and coaches instrumentalists and vocalists.
