Di has been teaching in Geelong for the last two years and now, through her "School of Uke" offers private weekly lessons out of the Music Studio at Bluebird House as well as her home studio in Moriac.

After moving to Geelong in 2015, the Ukulele started to play a major role in her own musical life, so Di decided that she wanted to share her love of this incredible instrument with everyone who wanted to learn. Di is training with the Canadian Ukulele Virtuoso, James Hill, through his Teacher Certification Program and is now a qualified Level 2 Teacher and currently studying Level 3. 

Di is also an experienced performer. One of her favourite memories is playing and singing My Island Home with the group “Ukestralia” at the Hawaii Ukulele Festival in July 2016. She most recently performed at the Blue Mountains Ukulele Festival with a group playing big band arrangements on the ukulele and also performs solo gigs. 

Di has recently launched the “Heartstrings Ukulele Project” in Geelong to enhance the lives of people in our community through the ukulele. Di works with one recipient each term to bring the gift of music to those that may be suffering from illness or who just need a lift in spirits and would normally not be able to access a ukulele and private lessons.
