A natural teacher at heart, I teach Piano, Visual Arts, and Yoga. I earned my Bachelor of Liberal Arts in Teaching and my California Teaching Credential in the Visual Arts and have been teaching professionally since 2012. I began playing the piano at age seven and advanced to honors recitals of Certificate of Merit through the Music Teachers' Association of California (MTAC). I have experience teaching ages 4-65 and beginning through early-intermediate levels. Beginners are my specialty and I currently teach 12 piano students a week. I use a variety of materials like flashcards and book series to teach classical, jazz, pop, and sacred styles: Alfred’s Basic Piano Library, Bastien Basics, Bastien & Bastien, Faber’s Piano Adventures, FunTime Faber & Faber, Piano for the Older Beginner, Alfred Masterworks, and Hal Leonard Songs from Disney. Students have the options of borrowing my used books or purchasing new books. My new students love the patience and personalization that I bring to each lesson. I combine theory, technique, practice, rhythm (counting), vocabulary, and performance pieces. Demonstrating each piece, we often have fun singing along and adding games or flashcards to aid in understanding. Students are expected to practice a minimum of an hour a week at home and schedule reoccurring lessons on this site. They have the chance to earn a stamp on their Piano Passport for completing each piece at 80 percent or better. Further, student receive awards for practice each week. These awards include a variety of stickers and breaks for Piano Tiles on my iPad. I teach inside my home studio.

Hannah is a lovely person to be with and a really nice teacher. She helped me understand my drawings from a different point of view, she helped me figure out resources to make my drawings better and she gave me some ideas about how to weave the words into my drawings. They were excellent ideas and I felt invigorated and refreshed when I left.

Hannah made my group yoga session such a great experience! Yoga in the park with a theme and some nice music to set the environment. She brought all the supplies needed. Great personality and made everyone feel comfortable trying yoga for the first time!

These summer classes led kids on imaginary journeys Around the world through one hour of yoga, followed by one hour of art related to the subject. For example, on our journey to Egypt, we did poses like Camel, Sphinx, and Mummy; then we created self-portrait profiles in the manner of the Ancient Egyptian Hierogyphics.
