Hannah studied at Chetham’s School of Music in Manchester, before moving to London to study with Melissa Phelps at the Royal College of Music, where she gained a BMus (Hons) Degree with Class 2:1.

After graduating, Hannah continued her studies with Sue Lowe, as well as attending The Eton International Cello Course, where she had masterclasses with internationally acclaimed Cellists, such as Steven Doane, Johannes Goritzki, Alexander Balillie and Louise Hopkins. 




Since graduating, Hannah has performed regularly as a soloist, including in her own concert series, with regular performances in London and the Midlands. Recent solo recitals include a lunchtime concert at Christ Church Spitalfields.

Following a busy and varied orchestral experience at The Royal College of Music, Hannah has worked with a number of professional orchestras, such as The Southbank Sinfonia and The New Professionals, including as Principal Cello in 2006. Venues have included The Queen Elizabeth Hall, St John’s Smith Square, St Martin in the Fields and The Royal Opera House.  Hannah has performed regularly with The New English Orchestra since 2007, often as Principal Cello.  The New English Orchestra has recently performed in Rome and Salzburg and in recent UK venues including Birmingham Town Hall and Symphony Hall and Manchester's Bridgewater Hall.

Hannah's television performances include Terry Wogan's Points of View Programme and the BBC drama The Inspector Lynley Mysteries.


 "Hannah is a rare musical talent.  There is a directness and power about her playing combined with a refined tenderness.  Her apparently effortless technique is continuously honed in pursuit of the most glorious musical ends."

Nigel Swinford - Artistic Director, The New English Orchestra
