Dian, this is what your teachers shared about you…

Miss Ann Marie: “It is an absolute pleasure to have Dian as a student here at AMA! She is always smiling when she comes into her lessons and is polite and kind to those around her. Dian has a great work ethic and passion for music, which really show when she performs, and it’s been wonderful to see her grow as a musician. She is a great role model for all of our AMAzing students! Congratulations, Dian, on this well-deserved achievement!”

Miss Jessica: “Dian is such an AMAzing student! She diligently practices a half hour daily and her hard work during the week shows when she comes to her lessons! She is always ready to tackle new things. Over the past few months, her sight reading has improved tremendously and she is becoming more and more aware of musical elements, such as dynamics, tempo marking, and phrasing, which really brings her pieces to life and makes them sound beautiful. She also recently joined her school’s jazz band! I’m so proud of her and can’t wait to see what’s ahead for Dian!”

She always puts a huge smile on my face with her funny comments and amazing dance moves. She does everything in class whole-heartedly and gives it everything she’s got! Currently, Gali is taking my Hippity Hoppers class, and is the only girl, but she truly gives those boys a run for their money with her awesome dance moves! Never do I need to remind Gali what she needs to be doing; she is always on task, showing everyone what it means to be a positive leader on and off the dance floor. Overall, Gali is just AMAzing!”
