I have had the pleasure of working with Hannah for the past four years on various orchestral, musical theatre and educational projects. Hannah has a beautiful, lyrical tone that blends well within a section and is coupled with confident projection that makes her a first choice for taking exposed and leading lines. Hannah is also confident around children and with a calm and professional manner, drawing on her teaching experience, makes her ideal for educational projects. Hannah is always well prepared, on time and professional and would thoroughly recommend her. Lee Marchant Musical Director & Assistant Head of Ealing Music Service

Background: I am the Chairman of Brompton Court (Bournemouth) Management Company. Brompton Court is a retirement complex with 66 flats. Although the Chairman’s job is largely related to the upkeep of the facility I also get involved in organising entertainment for the residents. I heard Hannah play at a recital given at Bournemouth Library and after the performance asked her whether she would be interested in coming to play at Brompton Court. She said ‘yes’, so we discussed details and fixed a date in June 2019. We have a fairly tight budget so agreed she used a backing system rather than accompanist. Performance: Hannah arrived in good time to get set up and then played two sessions comprising 6 pieces in each of popular music for the saxophone and clarinet including Summertime, Stranger on the Shore, Edelwiess and Moon River. The audience particularly enjoyed the couple of times she left the platform and played walking amongst them. Feedback: was very positive and we will be inviting her back this Autumn.
