“She is one woman, one guitar, and no gimmicks…
she is one of THE most important artists on the scene in years,
and one to watch closely for years to come.
And, for guitarists, one to study closely…”

INFLUENTIAL FEMALE GUITARISTS ON MODERN ROCK AND POP MUSIC:
past, present & future
Diana takes listeners on a journey over the past century discussing and performing the styles of strong and sometimes overlooked, female guitarists. This interactive and visual workshop covers the social injustices of the time, the history of music, and how each decades style influenced the next. Artists covered range from Elizabeth Cotten, Sister Rosetta Tharpe, Odetta, Joni Mitchell, Joan Jett to Ani DiFranco, KT Tunstall and more!
SONGWRITING & GUITAR WORKSHOP
Diana leads workshops and concert style lectures in high schools and colleges on songwriting and performance. Her focus is to open students minds past “how-to” guidelines to tap into and unlock their own creativity. Guitar workshops are often focused on alternate tunings and percussive techniques. Songwriting workshops are presented as a concert/lecture so writing strategies ranging from music theory to poetic methods of language arts can be both discussed and demonstrated. Workshops are designed to be hands-on and interactive so each student comes away with a new skill or practice to be implemented immediately.
