Diana Tayler began her musical studies with classical piano at age 5 and later, at the University of Alberta, found her true musical love – the harp. Her travels across the country and abroad have afforded her many opportunities to perform both as a soloist and as a member of musical ensembles, spanning from playing keyboards with Taiwanese musical ensemble Hyoochygyoo at music festivals and night clubs to premiering pieces written for solo classical harp. Diana has performed for past and current Canadian Prime Ministers and their families, and enjoys equally the pleasure and honour of playing at weddings, funerals and private and corporate events. Diana happily performs in venues ranging from five diamond dining rooms to outdoor weddings to concert halls.
In addition to being sought after as a soloist, Diana teaches harp and piano to students of all ages. Diana studied harp with World Class Harpist and JUNO nominee Caroline Leonardelli, and holds an ARCT in piano performance from the Royal Conservatory of Music, a Bachelor of Arts (Honours) in Linguistics and Music, and a Master of Arts from the University of Alberta in Linguistics.
Diana is also an active member of the Edmonton choral scene, singing Alto with i Coristi Chamber Choir and participating in other projects as they arise.
