ESA Level 5
Hannah Saucedo started the violin at age nearly 3 with Sally Lisney. Thanks to the Suzuki Method, Hannah was playing her first concerto with an orchestra but the age of 5. Soon she was playing in the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain and attending The Royal College Music Junior Department.
After a degree in English and Psychology Hannah was off to Kolkata, India with a few clothes and violin on her back to work in a music school surrounded by paddy fields. Teaching here turned out to be a transformative experience. Upon returning home, Hannah decided to embark upon Suzuki teacher training. Hannah achieved ESA Level 5 status, which is the highest attainable level of Suzuki teacher training. She has since helped countless students develop high ability and a love for music (as well as many scholarships, excellent marks in exams, leading positions in NCO, Stoneleigh and places at Music College Junior Depts). Hannah has taught at a number of schools including Southbank International School, Thomas' London Day Schools,
Hindhead School of Music and Old Vicarage School. Workshop teaching includes Bryanston
International Summer School and BSI National Children's Workshop.
As if teaching (and also raising a small human) wasn’t challenging enough, Hannah is currently doing a masters at the Royal Academy of Music studying with Jack Liebeck.
Session work includes a number of adverts for Breast Cancer UK, Pearl & Dean and an HBO documentary. She was published by Mute Records when recording with a folk band and was featured on BBC6 radio.
Hannah is also working on a number of exciting projects with friend and brilliant pianist Caroline Page to bring engaging classical music concerts to young children.
