“Diana is a wonderful piano teacher. She has a very effective, nurturing approach that keeps my daughters engaged and developing. My daughters look forward to their lessons every week and I am so pleased with the progress and growth they have made under her instruction. She is a talented artist in her own right and our lives have been enriched by knowing her. We are true fans!”

-John Kivinski, parent of students Katie, Brianna and Tara

“It is with great pleasure to write this recommendation on behalf of Diana Li. We have known Diana for about one year. Both my 16 year old son and 6 year old daughter are taking piano lessons with her. Diana is able to share her enthusiasm for music and dedication for the teaching of beginning students. She is professional and prompt.

Diana is able to connect with both my children and customize their piano lessons according to their abilities. It is very sweet to see my daughter and “Miss Diana” play and sing duets together. She is a very positive and encouraging teacher.”

-Lily Chan

“Diana was such a pleasure to work with! She is a true professional and one of the highlights of my wedding this past December. She was so easy to work with and made this aspect of wedding-planning completely stress-free for me! I knew exactly what songs I wanted her to play at my wedding, and a couple weeks before, she even did a trial performance and uploaded it to Youtube for my approval! It sounded more amazing than the original piece, and the only thing I wanted changed was the pacing, which she said she would be happy to change, and later on during the week, she had another video for me to approve! Of course, I loved it! On my wedding day, she arrived early to practice and set up, and everything went smoothly during the ceremony. All of my guests kept asking me who was playing the piano and singing because they were so impressed with her performance!

I think Diana’s best traits, other than her sheer talent, also include her originality and good ear for music (if you want, she can take requests but also make it her own and sound 10x better!) and also her flexibility. Weddings don’t always go as planned, and during the ceremony, the bridesmaids and flower girls didn’t finish walking out yet, but the song already ended, and Diana quickly figured out what to do and looped the song so no one in the audience noticed. If you are looking for a true musician to make your special day that much more special, then I recommend you to book Diana!”

-Grace Chiang, married Dec 2010

“Diana Li is a breath of fresh air. Her voice is beautiful and she has the ability to learn any song. Her versatility makes her a perfect fit for any wedding and I love recommending her to my brides and grooms.”

-Lindsay Longacre, founder of LVL Weddings & Events

“At first when hearing Diana perform, I was convinced it was a recording. Her beautiful piano playing and sweet voice is only rivaled by her amazing ability to learn a song by ear. Her wide range of covers make her appealing to all sorts of audiences. Can’t wait to get her CD!”

-Stacey Gitten, founder of Hitching Post Public Relations

“It was really important to us to have an artist playing music during our ceremony and we were so fortunate to find Diana who is elegant, easy to work-with, and talented beyond understanding. Diana sings and plays classical as well as modern pieces on the piano which set the perfect tone for our our wedding. It was special to plan our ceremony with such a versatile and gifted artist and we received so many compliments about her contribution to the day. If you want someone you can count on- hire Diana!!!”

-Michelle and Tim Wheeler, Married June 23rd, 2007

“We first heard the singer and pianist Diana Li perform at Gemmell’s Restaurant in Dana Point where my husband and I were dining with our daughter. Her voice was so beautiful that we wanted to stop talking in order to focus on her. On the other hand her voice was so soft and not at all intrusive that you could carry on a conversation and not feel as if you had to speak over her. I always remembered listening to her that evening and called upon Diana to perform at our home for my husband’s 60th birthday party. She was just amazing—having her sing that evening was the perfect touch to an unforgettable evening.”
