Meet our New Teachers!

Hannah Pagitt (Piano)

Hannah was first introduced to playing piano at the age of six when she began lessons. She began teaching while still in high school, taking on students at varying ages and levels. Her experience extends to many different ages as well as working in group settings, and she is also skilled with young beginners as early as 3 years old.



Milla Nyaga (Piano)

Born in Moscow, Russia, Milla was raised to love and play music. She has earned three college diplomas–including two master’s degrees–in music and education. She believes music should be taught to everyone without exception, and says that her students are “allowed to be creative without being wrong.”
