About Me

Having 20 years experience playing piano and 8 years private teaching, I enjoy working with students of all ages, levels, and backgrounds. With the right encouragement and my down-to-earth- teaching style, I'm positive you will progress with piano quicker than you realize! I work with your pace and am always fully open to addressing your needs and questions/concerns at the piano.

YELP: "Hanna's Piano Studio"


Aside from piano playing, teaching, and practicing, I enjoy going to the beach, running, exploring different coffee shops and being in the company of friends. I strive to live everyday with a positive mindset and try to live life at its fullest.
 

My Musical Education Background

Starting at the age of 6, I developed a love for the piano. A recipient of numerous academic awards, scholarships, and piano competitions from Pasadena City College and San Francisco State University, I have developed a sensitivity to musicality and love of collaboration with other musicians. I received a Bachelor of Music in Piano Performance- Summa Cum Laude and completed a Masters in Piano Performance from CSU Fullerton in December 2015. In addition to teaching, I enjoy performing solo, being in chamber ensembles, and working as a piano accompanist. Teaching piano has been a rewarding experience for me, assisting young pianists whether their interest in piano is recreational or career-oriented. Lessons should not be a chore, but something to look forward to with all its challenges and rewards.



Please contact me about scheduling or if you have any questions.

Look forward to hearing from you soon!

Genres and Subjects Taught

I focus mainly on classical repertoire, however, if you have a pop song you would like to learn, I will be more than happy to help you learn it. It's important that a student likes the repertoire he/she is playing. Lessons should be fun and enjoyable.

Student Reviews




Oakland, CA

Testimonial from Borami's father: If Hanna hadn't moved to LA, she would still be our child's piano teacher. She came to our house and was very flexible with her time to make lessons convenient. She also taught a broad level of musical theory that helped out daughter to appreciate different kinds of music and helped her to learn to love music. As a result, our daughter is motivated to continue her musical interests. Her new teacher said that after one and a half years of study with Hanna that she has progressed to the level of a student who has been taking lessons for 4 years. I highly recommend Hanna as a music teacher and wish that she didn't move to LA. If you are lucky enough to have Hanna teach your child you will always be grateful for the result.
