What Students are Saying

"Diane is an excellent teacher.  She is very talented and knowledgeable."

Advanced basket student 

Ormond Beach, FL


"I was fortunate to take the 

2-day advanced class from Diane.  Prior to the class we discussed what I wanted to experience during the class and were able to cover all the the items in addition to a few more that I had not mentioned.  With this class I became more confident to go "outside the box" that I had put myself in."
