Diana Rezzy

Ukrainian violinist Diana Rezzy is an experienced teacher whose career spans three decades and two continents. She graduated with a degree in violin performance from Leontovich Music University in Ukraine where she studied with Ekaterina Katelnikova. After graduation, Diana actively performed throughout the Soviet Union including concerts at the Ukrainian State Opera House, and she was a member of the Leontovich State Orchestra. During her time in the Soviet Union, she served on the faculty of Vinnitza Music School.

Her true passion has always been teaching, and she resumed it after relocating with her family to Houston, Texas in 1990. She taught privately and at the Southwest Suzuki School of Music where she worked with children and adults ages three and up. Experiencing Russian teaching methods and experimenting with the pedagogical approaches of two different countries gave Diana a unique perspective, helping to develop her personal teaching style. Several of her students have gone on to successfully major in music. Diana's structured teaching approach uses a fusion of Suzuki and traditional methods, which her students find gratifying and enjoyable.
