Overview:

Hello! My name is Hannah, I am a lifelong musician who is excited to share my passion for playing viola and violin. I graduated from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign where I earned my Bachelor of Music degree in 2015. I am currently completing my Master’s of Music at the same university. I have been teaching private lessons for more than ten years, and I deeply enjoy working with students of all skill levels. As a student, I played in many ad hoc orchestras in Champaign-Urbana, and performed with the UI Symphony Orchestra and Chamber Orchestra. I also played in quartets and performed a lecture recital, so I am well-versed in orchestral as well as solo repertoire.

EXPERIENCE

I started teaching private lessons when I was in high school and continued throughout my time in college and beyond. I have taught beginners of all ages as well as more advanced students, and have led group classes. I bring all my love for music to the lesson, and practice empathy and kindness with my students. I encourage regular, healthy practice and celebrate student accomplishments. I encourage my students to audition, attend competitions, and perform in recitals. While I am primarily a classical musician, I encourage students to play the music they enjoy while also teaching them to appreciate and become familiar with standard repertoire.

METHODS USED

Although I am not a certified Suzuki teacher, I do utilize the Suzuki books for beginning students. I find that they provide a good breadth of repertoire suitable for students who are new to their instruments. For more advanced students, I use standard repertoire for their instrument, making sure each piece teaches them to hone a skill while also preparing them for big auditions. I believe it is important to have a long and diverse repertoire list. I also use orchestral excerpts, which are important for getting ready for auditions as well. In addition to repertoire, I teach scales, arpeggios, and etudes and studies with all skill levels, according to their comfort with their instrument.

LESSON STYLE

I practice radical empathy in all things, but especially with my students. I believe kindness helps us grow; fostering a positive environment and relationship with my students is important to me, because it is important for their development as musicians. I believe in a holistic approach to teaching an instrument, nurturing and working on body, mind, and soul—a healthy and happy musician is a good musician! I encourage students to fall in love with what they do, and to advance at their own pace. I believe there is no such thing as bad musicians, just learners who are cultivating their art.

Select all the days/times the student would be available to start lessons. Selecting "3pm - 7pm" means the student can start as early as 3pm or start as late as 7pm. It is important that you select as many days and the widest window of start times for each day as possible. That will help us make a match with one of our teachers.
