Irene Diamond is performance-oriented and customizes her students’ programs to provide a comprehensive musical education based on their goals and desires.
Following Shinichi Suzuki’s philosophy that “any child can learn to play the piano,” Irene Diamond accepts students age four and up. There are no entrance requirements or auditions for children. Enrollment is dependent on the parents’ full understanding of their responsibilities and commitments in this form of musical education.
Throughout the student’s intermediate level of study, traditional concepts and materials introduced include technique and selections from the vast piano repertoire, until ultimately the advanced students enjoy classical training from the standard literature for the piano.
