Entertainer / Composer / Arranger / Coach
Hannah was born and raised in Southern California, surrounded by music and family, where passion for the arts grew. She is best known for her work in the singing group Delilah, which was featured on season 3 of NBC's hit competition show "The Sing Off."
Her love for music started as a young child, when she would watch from the wings as her mother sang and performed at Disneyland. She learned how to play the piano, the clarinet, and the oboe from a very early age, and honed her skills on each instrument by playing in school, attending band camps, and taking private lessons.
Her interest in singing and vocal music blossomed in high school, and carried her into her dream school, Berklee College of Music in Boston, MA. While at school, she joined the co-ed a cappella group Pitch Slapped, and immediately discovered her love of writing for vocal ensembles. She was named the assistant director her sophomore year ('10), and went to direct the group the following two years ('11-'12).
Under Hannah's direction, the group went on to compete on season 2 of "The Sing Off," went to the finals of the International Championship of Collegiate A Cappella consecutively and won in '11, and also won the collegiate competition at the SoJam festival in Raleigh, NC. The group has traveled and performed all across the United States, in their hometown of Boston all the way out to Anchorage, AK, and shared the stage with Bobby McFerrin, Rockapella, Naturally 7, the Boxettes, and more. She has won multiple awards for arranging, choreography, and soloist work in the group.
She studied Contemporary Writing and Production at Berklee and graduated in the spring of '12. Throughout the years, she had performed on countless stages as a member of Pitch Slapped, and also as a background singer and featured soloist in numerous shows at the school.
Hannah is currently a member of 3 professional a cappella groups. Musae started in early '11 and has been gaining attention and acclaim as they perform around the country. They just released their first full-length album, (There is No Easy Way) "From the Earth to the Stars." Delilah, another all-female group, was featured on "The Sing Off," and received much success on the show and afterwards. The group has traveled to Hong Kong, the Netherlands, and all over the country, performing for fans and spreading the art of a cappella in workshops. Level is a pro co-ed group comprised of former "Sing Off" cast members, and is based out of Los Angeles that works for hire at various events.
She works as an arranger for all types of vocal ensembles/styles, a performer, a studio singer, a coach, and teaches at a cappella festivals across the country.

She has coached a wide array of groups at CASA festivals such as SoJam, Los Angeles A Cappella Festival, BOSton Sings, A Cappella Festival in Chicago, and the Texas A cappella Celebration. She works with high school, college, and professional groups and is capable of coaching in whatever they need. This includes musicality, arrangement advice, solo expression, overall performance, overall movement, and choreography.
Hannah has been arranging since she first discovered a cappella in 2008. The main emphasis of her major at Berklee was on instrumental arranging for various types of styles and ensembles. She writes and arranges background parts for various bands around NYC and the country, and has worked on multiple albums doing the same. She writes and arranges for high school, collegiate, and professional a cappella groups across the country. Her favorite thing to do is custom arrangements for groups, designing a piece to fit every characteristic of a group, be it vocal or instrumental.
