After studying piano for almost 10 years I decided I wanted to learn a new instrument and began taking violin lessons when I was 16 years old. In spite of people telling me that I was “too old” to learn to play the violin, I continued practicing and one year later I joined my first orchestra. In 2016 I graduated with a BA in Music from the University of Massachusetts Boston and I am now the violinist of Boston-based fusion rock band " The Sunset Kings".
In November of 2018, I released my Spanish debut single "Ni Una Más" under my artist name "Hannah Schzde". "Ni Una Más" is now available in every music streaming service world-wide!
In addition to offering private violin and piano lessons and performing with The Sunset Kings, I am also a studio violinist and perform with different orchestra pits in the Boston area while I continue to write and record new material for my upcoming debut EP.
***Note: My availability is flexible! Please send me a message if my calendar doesn't fit with your schedule and we'll work it out!***
Exploration of the fundamental principles and early stages of teaching violin and viola through a series of engaging lectures and lesson demonstrations, including:
1) Master classes with some of the world’s top string pedagogues,
2) Individual lesson demos of teaching violin/viola set up, left and right hand technique and pieces from the early violin/viola repertoire,
3) Group lesson demos of teaching music theory, ear training and fun activities that encourage good playing habits, and
4) A “field trip” to the violin shop, a new beginning student was fit with a proper instrument and bow.
This course also included engagement in a series of discussions and reflections with colleagues and peers across the globe.
Hannah is a very dedicated and patient instructor. She always tries to keep the lessons interesting and fun, she also makes sure I take little stretch breaks in between exercises and always teaches me something new!
Excellent teacher! She starts with the basics of how to care for your violin, handling and same day we were playng. Each lesson has a beief review of the last and she provides tools (free apps) to help tune your violin and another for playing/ training.

Excellent teacher! Very personable and excited to teach. She taught me excercises to build the muscles to play the violin, taught me how to tune my violin and many other tips and tricks.
