Hannah Selin, Violin, Viola & Piano
Composer, violist and educator Hannah Selin has performed at venues throughout New York City including Carnegie Hall, Roulette, and Le Poisson Rouge. Her compositions merge acoustic instruments with electronic sounds, field recordings and recorded interviews to imagine new and unlikely sound-spaces. Hannah has studied composition with Wang Jie, Per Bloland and Missy Mazzoli, viola with Karen Ritscher, Robert Vernon and C.J. Chang, and voice with Fay Victor. She performs frequently with ensembles including the AEON Ensemble, Ensemble Mise-En, the Delphi Chamber Orchestra and her own group, GADADU.
After receiving the 2015 Miriam Gideon Award for excellence in the study of musical composition, Hannah was selected as Composer-In-Residence with the Brooklyn College Orchestra in the spring of 2016. In the fall of 2016, GADADU was awarded residencies at Avaloch Farm Music Institute and the Aaron Copland School of Music at Queens College. Hannah Selin was a finalist in the 2016 Verdant Vibes Call for Scores.
As a music educator, Hannah strives to provide her students with a lasting foundation that will serve them no matter what path they choose. She has over five years of experience teaching private and group classes, lessons and workshops for students of all ages and backgrounds. Hannah's pedagogy balances learning by ear with basic music theory, enabling students to experience the joy of playing a musical instrument while also learning how to read music.
