Hi! I'm Hannah. I am an award winning songwriter, performer, music therapist, producer, and music lesson teacher. I graduated from Berklee College of Music in 2013, with a dual degree in Music Therapy and Songwriting. Since then, I have toured in the East Coast and Midwest United States, as well as Ireland and Scotland, and have received numerous songwriting awards, including Winner of the Great American Song Contest in the Pop Category, Finalist in the John Lennon Songwriting Contest, and Finalist in the Great American Song Contest in the Adult Contemporary Category. I have taught songwriting workshops at MIT, South Shore Conservatory, in Kenya, and in Ireland. I've worked as a music therapy intern at Boston Children's Hospital, where I learned how to work with people from many different cultural backgrounds as well as with children who have special needs. I've also self-released two albums, collaborated in many different musical groups, and have licensed my music to several licensing companies. Throughout all of my experiences in my performance and artist career, I have always been a teacher of music. Most recently, I have been teaching songwriting to students all over the world, as well as private lesson students in my own home. I love being able to share the joy and love that I have for music with others, and to teach not only the musical skills, but also the appreciation for how music can bring more beauty, joy, and expression into one's life.
Quotes from previous students:
"Hannah's songwriting lessons helped me a lot as she set a supportive atmosphere which uplifted my belief in my songwriting abilities. She is genuinely keen on giving you help and bringing out your best to my mind. Thank you Hannah!"
-Polina, a songwriting student from Russia via online lessons
Taking piano lessons with Hannah has been a life changing experience for my 2 kids, Luc (10) and Jackie (8). They have taken piano lessons for almost one year with Hannah and thanks to her inspiring, creative and fun lessons, both have learned to appreciate and play music. They have learned how to read and write notes and have even composed their own songs. They can play an assortment of songs ranging from the blues to classical. The lessons are fun, relaxed and very educational. She has inspired them to explore to play on their own even when nobody is pushing them. I would highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning how to play.

Hannah redefines what a music teacher is. Rather than only teaching playing or singing skills, she teaches you to LOVE the music that you're making and to express yourself through it. She puts joy and creativity into teaching, which made it feel like I was starting to truly make music from Day 1. Plus, she's incredibly skilled and talented as a musician and teacher. I couldn't recommend her more highly!!!+ Read More
