About Hannah

Hello! My name is Hannah, and I would love to teach YOU! I am highly motivated, fun-loving, and exceptionally passionate about music-- even more so, having you develop a passion for it as well. I have performed all over the US and even Puerto Rico. With the many years I have studied my various instruments, and also performed with them, I am confident in the abilities I have now and those I continue to develop. I have a desire for everyone to have some musical knowledge, and an even greater wish for individuals to shift their knowledge into a love for whatever they choose to do musically. I can teach a variety of styles and enjoy the challenge of learning which ways to teach You best. Overall, I would call myself a "music dork."

I originally found Hannah as a violin teacher for a friend of mine, and she worked very well for him, so when I decided to go back to piano, I sought her out.

I have been taking Piano with Hannah for about a year. She is a wonderful teacher, who is very encouraging as well as knowledgeable. She is able to intermix theory and practice together so that I leave each lesson with a deeper understanding of the instrument and the music itself. She has proven very flexible and willing to work around obstacles in my schedule and has never made me feel bad when I haven't prepared as well as I should have, yet she consistently motivates me to continue to stretch and I always look forward to my lessons with her, and leave the lessons excited and eager to practice.

Excellent Opportunity

I feel very grateful to study under Hannah. She cares and wants you to improve. For me to trust my instructor, I need to know that my teacher cares. Hannah can and will adjust, if this is for the betterment of the student.

Hannah has a strong foundation that allows her to relate to students. Her desire to learn motivated me many times in our lessons.

Please do not hesitate, if you wish to improve your craft. Good Luck!!!
Udell H. Cleveland, OH

Theory is a very important part in learning to play and sing. I teach the meaning of notes, the types of notes, and how to read notes. I teach the meaning and purpose of the music, staff, timing,accidentals, phrases, and all other fundamentals of theory.
My method of teaching makes it fun and easy to learn.

excellent teacher

Maybe a bit premature after only one lesson, but after speaking with Robin at length over the phone, and being present during my son's first lesson, I must say I'm very impressed with her as my son's instructor. She has a vast portfolio of experience in a wide range of music, highly educated, extremely knowledgeable, and good at instruction. I'm especially excited that she incorporates music theory into the lessons. Highly recommended!

I recommend Phillip as a guitar teacher.

Besides being a very skilled guitarist, Phillip is very professional and reliable. He has a very laid back personality which really worked well for my shy 7-year-old daughter. He was patient and encouraging.
Graham H. Akron, OH

I can teach basic music theory. This can be applied to composition, improvisation, and analysis of the music that the student is playing.

About Graham

I am a fourth-year Piano Performance major at The University of Akron. I am currently studying with Philip Thomson, and my past teachers include Laura Silverman, Douglas Hicks, and the late Eugene Mancini. I have experience teaching six-year-olds, retirees, and those in between. I am patient, encouraging, and very passionate about music. I am available to teach in the student's home or online. It may be possible to have lessons at the church where I am Director of Music. Piano studies overview: You can play what you can hear. I work on developing the student's mental concept of how a particular piece of music might sound. This solid musical thinking translates into a reliable technique. Technique should come naturally and should not be overly thought, but I will explain some ...

Barbara D. Twinsburg, OH

Learning to read music is so essential to playing an instrument. While playing by ear is important, you cannot play most of the written works if you don't know how to decipher those dots on the staff. I will help you whether you are a beginner or are ready for college level theory.

About Barbara

Learning to play a musical instrument is a skill that has been proven to improve brain activity. It is one of the only activities to engage both sides of the brain. Students who learn a musical instrument show improvement in their ability to pay attention and understand what is being taught in their academic classes. Most students retain this advantage even if they do not continue to play into adulthood. Music is fun! It also can express your feelings in ways words cannot. I don't just teach you how to play your instrument, I will teach you to have a love for your music, and from that, you will find that it is a lot of fun! After all, you do "play" your instrument! In addition to the violin, viola and theory lessons described below, I am also available to coach ensembles. Any

My son has been taking lessons for several years with Barb. His skills and technique improved dramatically when he began and have continue to improve over the years. He received the "most improved" award in orchestra after his first year of lessons. He performs challenging music well at annual recitals and in Akron Youth Philharmonic with Barb's guidance. Barb is encouraging during lessons, yet always points out specific things that need attention for the next week. I highly recommend her.

We have been taking lessons with Barbara for several years now and her expertise is top notch. She has worked with both my 11 year old and 13 year old daughter. My oldest was principal for the entire 7th grade year and the lessons are what made a difference in her skill level. I am excited for my girls to continue to grow in their love of music and the viola and credit Barb for our private lessons. We are looking forward to this years solo and ensembles performance and already picked out our music. I highly recommend taking lessons with Barbara she is very flexible in her schedule and it's very convenient to set up and reschedule appointments and her prices are very reasonable.
