Introduction: **ONLINE LESSONS, for students all across the United States** Hello! I'm Hannah, a passionate and dedicated musician and piano teacher with over 20 years of experience in studying, performing, and composing music at the piano. With 4 years of teaching expertise, I have nurtured the musical talents of students of all ages and skill levels. Remember, it's never too late to start learning! My teaching approach combines classical technique and theory to build strength and dexterity while focusing on the music that resonates with each student. Whether you're into jazz, pop, classical, or any other genre, we can dig into your favorite music while exploring scales and chords, and building a solid technique. Additionally, I have a background in songwriting and composition and we can delve into these subjects during our lessons as well. I studied piano performance at Colorado State University before embarking on a 17-year journey with my band, SHEL. We signed a record deal and toured extensively, performing at prestigious venues like Red Rocks Amphitheater and festivals such as Lyon’s Folk Festival and Hardly Strictly Bluegrass. In addition, my compositions have been featured in movies, TV shows, and on Colorado Public Radio. These experiences enrich my teaching, as I draw upon real-world insights to guide students in discovering their musical passions and goals. My online studio is accessible through various platforms like phone, iPad, or laptop. For high-quality sound and video, I utilize FaceTime and Facebook Messenger. Lessons cover technique exercises, music theory, and a tailored repertoire that aligns with the student's musical preferences. If you're eager to learn piano or master the art of songwriting, I'm here to help. Send me a message and let’s get started!

Hannah has done an amazing job teaching me the fundamentals of piano over the past year. She has always been punctual, patient, and responsive to questions. I’ve been able to make great progress, especially because she has tailored my lessons towards the type of music that I’m interested in, and she has done an excellent job of explaining the complex aspects of music theory in simple terms that makes it easy for me to understand. And most of all, she always brings kind, positive, fun energy to every lesson. I’m very grateful to have her as my teacher and I can’t recommend her enough for anyone interested in learning piano.

I am an adult student who has also taken piano lessons with other teachers when I was much younger. Hannah is an excellent piano teacher, and she is extremely proficient in music theory and piano performance. I have been taking piano lessons remotely and Hannah is very good at using technology to support the lessons. Hannah is personable, enthusiastic, patient, punctual, and offers encouragement that makes the lessons enjoyable and provides motivation to practice. I would highly recommend Hannah for piano lessons of all ages.

Wanting to take piano lessons with Hannah has been one of the best choices I've ever made. Seriously, I can't write out all the ways spending time to learn piano with her has not only improved all areas of my abilities as a musician, but be happier balancing practice and the rest of my anxiety-filled life. As far as a teacher, Hannah is someone that I think anyone could learn something from, whether that is piano or even just being a good ear as the oocassional life coach. Regarding piano specifically, I started taking weekly lessons in 2020 and have since then felt much more comfortable in practice, live performing, and studio recording situations. I had played stringed and concert instruments growing up, but had very little piano experience and Hannah has helped me learn quite a lot about playing piano on a Roli Seaboard which has additional challenges to getting a proper technique. Over a year ago I could barely play basic triads on the seaboard, and now have began to improvise and understand written pieces of music. Hannah had no issues finding ways to teach me a variety of exercises, songs, and music theory. Her piano expertise is mainly in classical piano, but she has been able to help learn techniques and styles of music across multiple genres of piano including blues, jazz, funk, gospel, and even contemporary/modern uses for midi piano workstations. This also includes thinking about how to expand your playing in different situations such as performing music either as an individual or as an ensemble, and the big picture of understanding a song. Overall, every day feels like progress and I've only gotten more excited when I can play and learn more about the instrument. If you listen to any of her music you know Hannah is incredibly talented, but she is also down to earth enough to help others with the very basics of piano technique and have fun doing it. She is very patient and I still can't thank her enough for that. Hannah is very flexible to work with, offering lessons over Zoom (or in Nashville if you live there). I'm sure she can always find a way to help create a space for anyone to learn from and enjoy playing their instruments. There was initially some troubleshooting for using studio gear through Zoom, but she helped me become much more proficient at that as well. Beyond Zoom, Hannah makes some of the most helpful tutorial/practice videos I've ever watched that can be slowed down and she will respond to any questions you have as a student. Lessons started by exploring my interests as a musician and lessons have continuously developed and evolved from those conversations. I am proud to have her as a mentor and I'd recommend at least a couple lessons with Hannah to anyone, anywhere if you are wanting to learn piano. Thank you, Hannah!

Hannah is an amazing teacher! She is incredibly kind, patient, & encouraging through her instruction. My daughter is 7-yrs old, & with Hannah’s experience & expertise, she has been able to learn, not only to play the piano well, (far past my expectations), but has also gained an immense amount of love for playing. As it is w/all things that challenge us, learning to play the piano can be difficult at times, & sometimes my daughter gets frustrated or feels defeated, but Hannah is always so calm & understanding, & always finds a creative way to bring my daughter back to focus & enjoying the lesson once more. She keeps things fun & engaging by integrating my daughter’s favorite songs into their work together, & has just been a true blessing in our lives. My daughter has learned so much already, plays confidently with both hands, & even writes her own music through Hanna’s encouragement. If your looking for an instructor who checks all the boxes, look no further; Hannah is it!!
