- Class of 2021
- Program Kodály Music Education
Hannah received her bachelor's in Music Education in 2012 from Westminster Choir College, where she discovered her love for teaching music, particularly to elementary school students. “Initially, I thought I wanted to become a high school choir director, but after my experiences in an elementary practicum course, I felt that I had finally found my niche,” she explains. “My graduate program not only helped me to develop and refine my skills as a music educator, but it truly rekindled my love for teaching at a time where I felt stuck in a rut. I loved the energy of my young students and also enjoyed being able to use my creativity within the music classroom.” Hannah is a graduate student in the Kodály Music Education program through Loyola University Maryland and teaches music at Wilson Wims Elementary School in Maryland. She says the Kodály program appeals to her for its approach to joy, musicianship, and music skills, and Loyola’s program was the perfect fit in terms of schedule, location, and the passion and dedication she sees in all of her professors. Hannah hopes to one day instruct other music educators. “I am now pursuing professional opportunities to create Kodály-inspired music education resources for teachers and parents to use with their students and children. I am also planning to create some youth music programs to serve my community in the future.”
