Very good teacher. Very important music information. I have finished my song using just knowledge from two our lessons. Good emotions. I like her music.
Dina is one of the most hardworking people I know. She dedicated her life to what she loves the most: music. I'm amazed at how easy everything becomes when she explains it. Dina has a gift and she's always ready to share it, be it to beginners or advanced students.
A wonderful tutor and a dedicated teacher that is always ready to exchange ideas with others. No only does she provide lessons for piano, she also plays the guitar and drums! I'll never forget how much funnier and interesting piano lessons became since I met her. Always flexible in her approach to students and ready to adapt to their various levels. Truly a Superprof I'd recommend to everyone!
Dina is dedicated teacher with lots of motivation to give to others. Apart from giving to the students what they need in terms of knowledge, she applies different approach to each of them. She is a great person!
Dina and I are both music teachers and we often exchange ideas of teaching.
She is one of the greatest teachers that I know because her high musicality allow her to be flexible in any levels of students and find the best ways to approach them. She always finds materials which are both practical and fun.
She has amazing ears that can pick up songs on the spot and can accompany which most of the classical teachers can't do. I highly recommend her for students with various interests!
Dina is a wonderful tutor!
She has knowlage, patience and enhusiasm so she is the best choice for anyone who wants to learn to play any instrument because she plays piano, guitar and drums!
She is a great listener and you can always talk to her about anything!
Dina has been teaching me piano for just over a year, and I couldn't have asked for a better teacher! Lessons with her are always fun, but productive, and I have definitely become a better piano player thanks to her. Although our lessons mainly focus on the songs I want to learn, we also spend time working on music theory.If you're a casual player who wants to learn how to play your favourite songs or are a more serious player looking to complete the piano grades, I highly recommend her!
