Hannah Templeton
BMus (Hons) MA

Hannah studied music at King's College London from 2008-2011 where she specialised in performance, receiving her clarinet lessons at the Royal Academy of Music. She also has an MA in Eighteenth-Century Studies, and has recently submitted her PhD in music history. Her PhD explores the fifteen months that the composer W.A. Mozart spent in London with his family as an 8-9 child in 1764-5.

Alongside Hannah's music research she has nine years of instrumental teaching experience, including five years as a clarinet and piano teacher at Bishop Thomas Grant School in London. Hannah has also worked as the research leader for the London-based Classical Opera's Mozart in Europe education project, and has appeared in the BBC Four documentary Mozart's London Odyssey.

Now based in Edinburgh, Hannah teaches clarinet and piano while continuing her research into musical life in the eighteenth century.

  • My favourite children's book is Tom's Sausage Lion by Michael Morpurgo.
  • The strangest food I have ever eaten is fried locust tacos in a Mexican restaurant!
  • The next instrument I would like to learn is the guitar.
  • If I were an animal I would like to be my cat Cleopas. When it's cold he sleeps by the radiator all day and when it's sunny he climbs trees in the garden. He also gets lots of treats!
  • My favourite day out in Edinburgh is a walk in the Braid Hills followed by hot chocolate at The Chocolate Tree.

Hannah teaches clarineo, clarinet and piano.
