Rebekah Hanson, violist and violinist, holds a DMA and MMus from the University of Oregon. She has a private studio and is on the faculty at the University of Portland, where she is the director of orchestral studies and teaches music history.

Rebekah teaches students of all ages and focuses on helping her students not only play their instruments well, but have fun and learn to love music. Her passion is connecting students to their community, helping them understand that they have something beautiful to offer the world.

Her students (both University and private studio) have won awards, including the Suzuki Association of the Americas Violin Performance Ensemble and Young Artist Orchestra, NAfME All-State and All-Northwest Orchestras, the George Fox University Concerto Competition, and Concertmaster of the University of Oregon Symphony. Rebekah has been a guest teacher at Suzuki, chamber music and orchestral workshops and has given lectures at the SAA Conference as well as the NAfME Conference.

In addition to teaching, Rebekah loves playing chamber music and board games.

At this time, Rebekah’s studio is full and she is not accepting new students. Please check out the Oregon Suzuki Association website for teachers in the area!
