I'd always wanted to take violin lessons, and am so glad that I met Hannah! She really takes the time to properly explain technique, and we always talk about the emotional aspects of the music. She makes sure to beautifully demonstrate a lot during the classes, and works really hard to make them an enjoyable learning experience!

I've Had lessons with Hannah for a little over a year now! I've learned and improved so much throughout that time! She challenges me with pieces she knows that I can play, improving my skills along the way. Hannah is a teacher who truly cares about her students!

Hannah is a top-calibre violinist and teacher. She meets students on their own terms and is great at finding the right approach for each individual child. She excels at bringing out her students' musicality and helping them connect with the emotional value of the music.
