- 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. “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.

After three intense weeks learning from and alongside incredibly skilled and dedicated teachers, I felt so encouraged and equipped as I returned to my classroom in the fall. The teachers at AKI are there because they want to improve their craft and learn how to better create meaningful and joyful experiences for their students.
