Currently in her second year at the University of Oxford, studying for a BA in Music, Hannah is a creative and enthusiastic teacher with a degree specialism in Performance, Music Academia, and Music Teaching Practice and Pedagogy. With both a classical and contemporary background in music training, Hannah has gained experience in piano, voice and guitar, as well as violin, saxophone, bass, and orchestral tuned percussion. As well as being a Soprano Choral Scholar at Lady Margaret Hall college, Hannah regularly performs at events and recitals, most recently as part of a lunchtime recital series with Magdalen College on classical piano. She also has extensive pit playing and performance experience on guitar, having just played electric and acoustic guitar for ‘Persephone’ the musical at the Oxford Playhouse, and is also the lead guitarist for a Fleetwood Mac cover band. Alongside her enthusiasm for her degree and performance opportunities, Hannah has a music YouTube channel (Hannah Kieve) and is currently in the process of recording her own album of original music.
Having learnt piano since the age of 4, Hannah’s main goal is to spark enjoyment for music, combined with the philosophy that anyone at any age can learn. She believes that teaching is a communicative process where the aspirations and endeavours of the student are central. With practice, patience and appropriate technical assistance they should feel as though they are able to achieve anything they want to, the sky is the limit!
