Hannah specialises in solo Bass Clarinet performance

After beginning to learn the bass clarinet in 2015, Hannah soon began to realise it was the instrument she wanted to specialise in. With the guidance of her bass clarinet teacher Helen Paskins, and her head of woodwind Ian Peters, she began to explore the avenues of contemporary bass clarinet performance. Hannah began playing alongside pianist Daniel Keen, but now performs more unaccompanied repertoire. Hannah has began to branch out into performing with electronics, some with personally made tracks. Hannah is extremely interested in furthering the repertoire for bass clarinet, and has began commissioning more repertoire this year (information below).

Hannah now studies with Paolo De Gaspari, Fiona Cross and Anthony Pike at Trinity Laban Conservatoire.
