*** Lesson Details ***
As a teacher many have described my style as nurturing-but-firm. When I see a student's potential, I make sure that student can attain it. I expect a willingness to learn, a desire to succeed, and a want for excellence. In return, I offer the tools to get the student there!
I know that not every student benefits best from only one method. As such, I employ a variety of teaching tools and methods to best suit each student. Strings students can expect to see a little bit of traditional training, a little bit of Suzuki and little bit of contemporary training. Voice students can see some Sieber vocalizes, some Vaccai, classical, jazz, and musical theater training built on an old-world teaching technique. It's all about giving the student the tools to do whatever he/she wants with his/her music of choice!
On your first lesson, I'll go over the materials needed, what you need to work on, and the very basics so you can immediately get to enjoying your new craft. In a few months, you'll be confident making new music or making better music. Within a year, you should be well prepared for one of my studio recitals!
*** Studio Equipment ***
I have a commercial music teaching studio used solely for the purposes of teaching. In the studio there is a piano, my music library, photo copier, computer, audio equipment, stereo, music stands, standing mirror, and various teaching tools. There is a waiting area for parents, siblings and other visitors.
*** Specialties ***
Voice: All Genres -- child-adult, all levels (beginning through advanced).
Violin: All Styles -- all levels (beginning through advanced).
Viola: All Styles -- all levels (beginning through advanced).
Cello: All Styles -- beginning through intermediate.

Using my expertise as a performer and writer of musical theater, you will start with an excellent foundation for technique that will make Broadway-style singing effortless and fun. You will also learn to act a song in both interpreting the lyrics and moving your body. Finally, we will build your "rep" book with songs that fit your voice and cast-type so that you can feel confident auditioning for and performing in musicals.
I have a Bachelor of Music in musical theater performance from Catholic University and have experience performing regionally as well as coaching in New York. As a musical theater writer, I regularly work with both aspiring and current Broadway performers.
I'm so excited to be in Music City! I just moved to Nashville from New York City where I worked with Broadway performers and kids auditioning for some of the most competitive performance schools in the country. I'm confident I can help you achieve your music goals, whether they be learning to produce a powerful, resonate, healthy sound with your voice, becoming proficient in piano from everything from Bach to Billy Joel, or writing clear, catchy songs that will have a big impact on an audience.

Hope to be working with you very soon!

Here's the basic outline of what you can expect:
Before we ever begin with your lessons we will do a vocal evaluation. We will see what areas you would like to strengthen vocally. We'll set some goals and completely customize your lessons to you and your needs.
A basic lesson goes as follows:
* Warm Up
* Learn new skills
*Apply skills in YOUR choice of style and music.
We have one voice. just like a piano can play many different styles of music, your voice can do the same if you train it properly. you should be able to sing with the same vocal quality all the way through your range without having breaks. We will work on smoothing out your range so that singing becomes EFFORTLESS. Once your singing becomes effortless, you will be free to express yourself, and get the message of your music across to your audiences. Successful music is connection to people. When you can deliver your message unhindered by vocal blips-- you will be an amazing artist!! :)
i'm so excited to work with you!

Hi, my name is Hannah. I have a BM in Commercial Music from Belmont University in Nashville as well as extensive experience with popular music, classical music, and musical theatre. I have experience performing live as a vocal artist, singing background vocals, recording, music composition, and, of course, teaching. My goal is to help students feel comfortable and confident while performing as well as to teach healthy vocal techniques across all genres to encourage vocal longevity.
