Miss Hannah

Piano and Violin Instructor, Lead Preschool Teacher
Born into a family of musicians spanning several generations, Hannah discovered her love and passion for music at a very young age. Hannah’s musical journey began with the organ, and soon evolved into playing the piano at age 7. Over the next 17 years, her musical interests have continually expanded as she learned the violin, cello, guitar, electric bass, and the Irish tin/low whistle. She is currently tackling the accordion and the challenging and beautiful Uilleann pipes! Hannah says: ‘I am always seeking to learn and expand my musical horizons by studying various genres while honing my composition, recording, and improvisation skills. I am honored to work in such a supportive environment that cultivates an atmosphere of learning, and teaches children the joy of music. It is a true privilege to be a part of a child’s development and I desire to do all I can to help them succeed’!
