My name is Dinna. I teach Spanish and violin. I was born and raised in Peru and have been a resident of the U.S. for over 25 years. I was trained in music, violin specialization, at the Conservatory of Music in Trujillo, Peru. I have played with the Chamber Orchestra and the Symphony Orchestra of Trujillo. I teach private lessons using both the traditional and the Suzuki methods. My expertise lies in classical violin and fiddle styles.

I am also fluent in the English and Spanish languages. I can teach or tutor beginner, intermediate, and advanced level Spanish. I have experience teaching children and adults. In Pittsburgh, I worked for Cano International as a Spanish/English Translator/Interpreter; and taught Spanish at an Elementary School in McKeesport.

Classes are taught in my home or business location in Indiana, PA.

My teaching methods reflect my desire to not just teach, but to produce positive results, while maintaining a professional, caring, and fun environment.
