Hannah Grant studied Oboe and Cor Anglais on the performance degree at Trinity College of Music. The degree, of which Yehudi Menuhin was the president, consisted of Kodály Studies taught by Yuko Vinden, instrumental teaching, orchestral studies, chamber music, recitals and conducting. She won the London Mozart Players Prize for Outstanding performance, amongst other awards, with her trio.

On leaving College, Hannah continued to play orchestrally and teach Oboe for Hertfordshire Music Service. She became one of the Counties oboe specialists, helping lead double reed days and performances. She wrote and implemented her own oboe curriculum, which used numerous Kodály principles. She also undertook the performance management of other instrumental teachers.

In 2014 Hannah started to train in and teach class music. A year later she began musicianship with David Vinden and attended her first BKA summer school. This led her to teach curriculum music using the Kodaly philosophy in both primary and secondary schools in Hertfordshire. In 2018 she completed the year long BKA Primary Level 2 Certificate Course for 7-11 year olds and in 2019 presented methodology sessions at the BKA Spring and Summer school.

In 2019, Hannah spent an academic year in Kecskemét, Hungary at the Ferenc Liszt Academy of Music Kodály Pedogeological institute of Music for the first year of a 2-year diploma course in Kodály music education, the second year was completed at home online. This included weekly visits to a singing school in Budapest to observe Borbála Szirányi, Edina Barabás and Dávid Farkasházi teach Yr4-8 as well as taking László Nemes’ 2nd year Masters Methodology lessons.

Currently Hannah is teaching musicianship online for DoReMi and Level 3 Primary methodology for the BKA, as well as continuing to perform orchestrally. She has also been taking advantage of the online classes, having completed Level 2 Secondary Methodology, and is very much enjoying being part of many levels of musicianship classes and meeting like-minded people from around the world!
