Vivacious and positive, Hannah has been teaching for over 10 years. Her childlike creativity gives her a connection with students on an individual level. She started violin the day of her fourth birthday and has now been playing and performing for twenty two years.
She grew up as a student of the Northern Virginia Suzuki music school for 13 years under the study of renowned pedagogy and musical genius, Ronda Cole. She performed for a Bach symposium at the Smithsonian Institution at the age of 5, debuted as a soloist with orchestra at the age of 14, and attended the Heifetz International Music Institute at the age of 15. Hannah has worked with many famous artists including Pamela Frank, Nick Kendall, Katie Lansdale, Brian Lewis, Marylou Speaker Churchill and more.
Hannah has performed at the Kennedy Center and Strathmore Hall, won numerous competitions and was seated as a top concert master in the American Youth Philharmonic under Maestro Haza. She later completed the Suzuki Teacher Training course under Ronda Cole, “Every Child Can!”
Always with an inspiring quote up her sleeve, and fantastic listening suggestions for each individual, she inspires her students to do more than play with pristine technique.
