Hannah Strings

Strings Education Specialist, Cellist, Teaching Artist

Hannah Wang is a strings education specialist, cellist, and teaching artist based in the greater DC area. She obtained her Bachelor’s of Music Education at the University of Maryland in 2011 and her Master’s of Arts Management from American University in 2015, where she wrote a thesis titled “Applying Practices in Teaching Adult Beginners: Sharing Ideas from the Climbing Field with the Music Field.”

She has studied with such notable cellists as Evelyn Elsing and David Teie; and has performed at venues including the Kennedy Center and the Clarice Smith Performing Arts Center. Hannah successfully ran a strings program at three elementary schools in the Anne Arundel County Public School System. As a strings teacher, she has taught at grade levels from 3rd through 12th, teaching future violinists, violists, cellists and bassists. 

Her philosophy is to instill superb habits in her students and to help them not only become great musicians; but also build the critical thinking skills necessary to develop themselves in music and beyond. She loves working with learners of all ages and all ability levels and is just as comfortable showing new students how to hold a bow as she is delving into the intricacies of music theory. Her main goal is to help you become the best musician possible, and to help you achieve everything you want to on your instrument.
