Victoria DiGiacoma


My name is Victoria DiGiacoma. I am a Christian piano teacher in the Georgetown / Harbeson area. I wanted to reach out to some local home school groups and families to see if there would be any interest in taking piano lessons.

I teach all styles and periods of music from beginner to intermediate levels. I stress the need for music theory, as I believe it to be essential and it is incorporated into each lesson.

The lessons are built to fit each student, individually, and according to what they have a desire to learn. I like to make the lessons fun and keep my students inspired. Most importantly, I want to not only instill a love for music and a desire to learn more about it, but also share the love of God with each student and encourage my students to learn more about their Savior.

If you have any interest or know of any families that would be interested please let me know. I can be contacted by either email at musicoftheheart63@gmail or phone at (302)245-0626.

Thank you and have a great day,

Victoria DiGiacoma

Every time we sit down at the piano we have the opportunity to discover—I aim to inspire a spirit of playfulness and exploration in every lesson. I have a master’s degree in piano and years of teaching experience working with students of all ages. My teaching style is supportive and flexible, and I strive to enable efficient, musically engaged, and process-oriented learning.
