Hannah joined The Music Center in 2022 to teach voice and is thrilled to share her abilities with students of all ages and levels. Her goal is to help students explore their unique voices’ beautiful colors and layers, learn to sing with ease, drop the tension, and pick songs that suit them perfectly while presenting a challenge. “Seeing a student discover that lightbulb moment when working on a challenging piece is one of the most rewarding parts of my job,” she explains. Hannah is also passionate about the importance of teaching vocal health to her students. To become a knowledgeable singer, she shares with her students how the vocal cords function and how to protect them for a long-lasting vocal career. Hannah’s first introduction to music was after seeing the musical Annie at the tender age of three. Soon after, she began singing lessons and eventually chose Oakland University to continue her musical studies. She has performed in many professional and regional productions and received training from Broadway professionals in voice, theatre, and dance, specializing in the styles of musical theatre, classical, pop, and rock. A favorite musical moment for Hannah was playing Elle Woods on the opening night of Legally Blonde The Musical at The Tibbits Opera House in Coldwater. Singing the powerful pop score and taking on the role of a fantastic character was a dream come true. Hannah graduated from Oakland University, earning her Bachelor of Fine Arts in Musical Theatre.
