She had the opportunity to study with a number of incredible teachers as she grew up, including Lisa Guttenburg, Therese Fetter, Dr. Julia Bullard, and Frederick Halgedahl. She went to the University of Minnesota to study with Mark Bjork, where she received her Bachelor’s deree in violin performance, and then decided to return to UNI to study under Dr. Ross Winter and pursue a Master’s degree in violin performance, which she completed in 2017. She is currently teaching at the UNI Suzuki School, where she was a student for so many years. She also works for the Waterloo-Cedar Falls Symphony as the music librarian, preparing the music for the musicians for each concert set. In addition, Hannah plays and performs as much as she can with ensembles and orchestras throughout eastern Iowa.
