Hello, my name is Hannah Bartley. I am a passionate music instructor and performer, with 17 years of experience playing and studying the violin and continuing. I earned a bachelorâ€™s degree in music performance from Eastern Michigan University in 2015. Since then, I have been teaching music with an emphasis in the classical genre to build technique, an understanding of music theory, and to inspire a lifelong love and appreciation for music. I have experience playing many genres of music (such as fiddle) and am always happy to help my students learn to play the music they love.
While I am always flexible and adaptable, I tend to teach utilizing the proven Suzuki method for which I have received professional training. Additionally, as a member of the Music Teacherâ€™s Association of California, I offer training for the Certificate of Merit program.
I have been an active member in various orchestras and am currently a member of the La Jolla Symphony Orchestra. Having grown up in Michigan, I played with the Saline Fiddlers, performing various styles of fiddle music almost every weekend and touring in the summer both nationally and internationally. I have played in many chamber ensembles and performed at weddings.
