Raised in a family of devout music lovers, Hannah found the joy of singing and songwriting at a young age. When the time came she attended Brigham Young University, where she received her degree in Commercial Music with an emphasis in Singing and Songwriting. She teaches voice and songwriting alongside her career as an artist.
I work closely with students to create a safe environment for learning and growth. We return the voice to its natural state with a science based approach. Each exercise has a purpose to help strengthen the systems used in healthy singing. Through this approach students effectively expand range, improve vocal tone and breath control. Once the voice is optimized through healthy technique, limitations fall to the wayside.
Age Range and Abilities Taught:
Male and Female 5 and up, I have extensive work with individuals with handicaps, learning disabilities and vocal damage due to things like muscular dystrophy, nodes, vocal cord paralysis, and reflux.

Hannah is great to work with! My daughter just loves her
Hannah is very knowledgeable and yet she is able to teach in such a way that makes it fun and easy to understand. She listens well and is friendly. I would recommend her anyday.
Hannah was an incredible instructor. She worked very well with my goals and was kind and patient. She explained concepts well and was extremely knowledgeable and experienced. I could tell she cared about me as a person and not just as a student, which I really appreciated. I would consider her a friend as well as a teacher. I’d recommend her to anyone!Show More
Everything I struggle with she finds a solution and helps me better myself and my voice.
Hannah was very helpful and kind, she taught me a lot
Hannah is really great at getting my daughter comfortable with the lessons. She also keeps her focused and on task with the lesson all while having fun! Super lucky to have found a great teacher for our daughter's vocal lessons!
She is great at explaining things in new ways. She has helped me get on a schedule for practicing voice and has given me a playlist with many different and useful voice exercises.
My voice has significantly improved after lessons with Hannah. My tone and pitch have also improved dramatically. If you are interested in writing songs, Hannah is also a great teacher for that. I have written many songs since taking lessons from her. You don't even have to leave your home because Hannah can teach skype lessons. Many people don't like Skype lessons because they seem impersonal. I recommend trying a free lesson. You will see that Hannah makes it seem like she's there in person. I live in the country so this has been very convenient. I love her teaching style. She has empowered me to create many beautiful songs. She is very well qualified and knows what she's talking about.Show More
To say Hannah is a great voice teacher would be an understatement. She is. But she has also helped me with a lot more than that. I started lessons with her about 4 months ago and I have made great improvements since then. I have been singing for about 13 years and taken from several other teachers as well. Those who know me consider me a great singer, but she has still found ways to help me improve.
In more recent years, I haven't been in voice lessons, and during that time I have developed some bad habits (some of which was brought on through some vocal trauma). Hannah has and is continuing to help me overcome those bad habits, leading to not only healthier singing, but better sounding singing as well.
I've always had an interest in doing more with my music such as writing, recording, and performing. She has helped me in these areas as well by teaching me not only how to get started writing music, but also on how to improvise music and be an all around better musician.
I would recommend Hannah to just about anyone. It doesn't matter if you're brand new, or been singing a long time. She's fun, honest, easy to get along with, and most importantly her methods work.
My children have made great progress with singing and songwriting under Hannah's instruction. She is flexible, knowledgeable, personable and knows her stuff.
Hannah's awesome! I contacted her mainly for songwriting feedback but also for guidance while applying and auditioning for BYU's commercial music program. She always went above and beyond in assisting me from songwriting, to voice lessons, to guidance with production and recording and navigating the local music scene. Hannah knows what she is talking about in both vocal and music techniques, as well as the business side of music. And even more important, she truly loves what she does and has a natural ability for teaching in a way that will help you grow immensely! If you are even slightly on the fence about taking lessons from her, don't be--you won't be disappointed!Show More
I took lessons from Hannah's for a few months, and I loved it! She helped me prepare for my audition and put together my portfolio of original songs. I learned so much about songwriting and she helped me prepare for my songs so well. It was a great experience!
I highly recommend Hannah for vocal lessons or songwriting lessons. She's great!
Great lesson, experienced teacher.
Love her style and how flexible she is with my schedule.
Hannah was a great teacher! She listened and gave great feedback without being intimidating. She not only taught me a lot about my voice but gave me great tips on my performance and led me to a lot of great resources for singing and performing. I feel much better prepared for auditions.Show More
