About Me

Born and raised in Providence Rhode Island, and blessed with the "Gift of Music" in my life, I have been sharing that gift to children and adults of all ages teaching piano and organ. I also serve as a church organist for several Catholic Churches both in RI and SC for over 30 years.

Young children naturally respond to musical sounds, and learning to play piano helps to develop their brain, increasing concentration and memory skills. It also heightens personal and social awareness, physical coordination as well as a sense of achievement and builds self-confidence. I especially enjoy teaching piano to young children, as young as 5 years old, giving them a positive, fun musical learning experience, and a solid foundation in music that will last a life time! I have had experience in teaching all ages from 5 to 75 years old.

My Musical Influences

My Dad played accordion and had a great love for music! He was very supportive, always encouraged me along the way, and we had fun sharing the gift of music together. He was my biggest fan!

My first teacher, Mrs. Rose Knight, was an awesome teacher! She gave me my "first positive musical experience"! I always remember what a patient, kind and loving teacher she was and how much fun we had together, and learning at the same time! Today I try to be that kind of teacher for my students!

To all my musician friends, and colleagues, and how we encourage each other and help one another to be the best we can be.

Student Reviews

Columbia, SC

I have know Diane Faella for several years. This past school year, she became my daughter's piano teacher. It was a great experience. Ms. Faella showed my daughter kindness, patience, and love. She practiced with her after school on a weekly basis. Ms. Faella never missed a lesson. She always encouraged my daughter with positive reinforcement, praise and small treats (pencils, stickers, etc.) I felt that my daughter progressed very well. She quickly learned her scales and within a few weeks my daughter was playing simple songs. Because of Ms. Faella's nurturing and supportive attitude, my daughter was always eager to practice. Ms. Faella always kept me posted on my daughter's progress, and my daughter adored her. I highly recommend her for teaching piano. Sincerely, Mrs. Celestine P.

Moving from a music school to lessons at home could have been a huge mistake. However, Miss Diane brought her happy, trusting nature to play. My children are enjoying lessons at home in a quiet, safe environment. As a Mom, she also has time to offer me help and guidance so I can support the children in their daily practice. Well worth every dollar. Mrs. Jayne R
