Hannah Jones, a violin and viola teacher at Subito Music Academy

Hannah Jones-Ohmar - Violin/Viola, Chamber Music Instructor

Hannah's passion for the violin began when she first saw her grandmother’s instrument at the age of five; she was fascinated and asked her parents for a violin for Christmas, and lessons followed a few months later. Since then, she has studied privately with Linda Montgomery, Judy Rich, Professor Noemy Wheeler, Tim McMurray, Dr. JinHee Kim, and currently under Dr. I-Ting Huang. She played first violin in the Utah Youth Philharmonic for five seasons under Barbara Scowcroft. The study of unedited classical works by prominent composers and the opportunity to perform in premier concert halls was instrumental in her decision to pursue a career in music. She began teaching at the age of fourteen and has discovered her passion for teaching music to the next generation. Hannah’s passion for music doesn’t end with the violin; she has performed on French horn and trombone in various ensembles. While at CBU, Hannah studied piano with Dr. Jennifer Cruz and composition under Dr. Joshua Rodriguez. One of her compositions, “Dreams” for a mixed ensemble was premiered at the Sewanee Summer Music Festival in 2019.

Hannah enjoys rock climbing, hiking, and spending time with her nieces and nephews in her free time.
