Diane LaVerne

Diane LaVere has a passion for teaching the very young music principals through song, movement, play, and theory. She has been teaching preschool music for over 20 years and also enjoys teaching early elementary general music. She has taught pre-K through 8 in many Catholic schools in the greater bay area, and also private and public schools around the bay.


My B.A. is in Music Education was from College of Notre Dame, Belmont (now Notre Dame de Namur), and my post graduate studies include an Orff Schulwork Certification at Mills College.


When she is not teaching music, she is often teaching Karate. to the youngest students (4-6)). She is also on the Medical Committee for the Northern CA Regional Sports Organization, so some of my weekends are spent at Karate Tournaments working as the Medical help.


Among her many talents and passions she also loves to sing, and often sings for her church.  If l wasn't teaching music, she would still be working in the I.C.U. Or C.C.U. of a hospital, watching heart monitors and assisting the nursing staff as a Unit Coordinator.
