About Hannah

Hannah was a creative but shy child with a passion for singing. Her teenage years were spent scribbling lyrics and belting out songs around the house, but she found her initial experience of formal music education to be dry and uninspiring.

It wasn’t until she had major surgery on her spine as a young adult that she had an epiphany- she was going to follow her dream of singing, no excuses allowed. Within months, Hannah was fronting the band Kid Karoshi and writing her first songs. She enrolled on every musicianship course she could, whilst supporting her studies with a full time day job.

Soon other students were asking Hannah’s advice and her passion came into focus –she loved watching others blossom. Whilst developing her own voice, Hannah spent the following years studying vocal and musical pedagogy, and set up her own vocal studio.

Hannah teaches students of all ages and abilities and her motto is that music is for everyone. As each and every student bravely embarks on their singing journey- whether for fun, or to achieve artistic goals, Hannah is rooting for them every step of the way.
