Degrees and Certifications:
Hello! My name is Elizabeth Hahn, and I am the new Assistant Orchestra Director at DMS. This is my first year in FBISD and I am super excited to get to know the students and community!
I graduated with a Bachelor's in Music from Angelo State University in 2020 (Go Rams!). During my time there, I gained a lot of professional experience playing the violin, from being a member of the ASU String Quartet to performing with the San Angelo Symphony to playing in Cancún, Mexico. After graduating, I continued my professional and educational experience by teaching private lessons to students in the North Dallas area and playing in the Hurst-Euless-Bedford Symphony.
My goal as an educator is first to develop future citizens, and second to develop future musicians and music enthusiasts. Orchestra is where students learn teamwork, leadership, and discipline on top of the skills and techniques required to play their instrument. Even if they choose another direction in their future, students will need these values to become successful as they grow into adults, and my hope is that they also develop a love for listening to and performing music.
I am looking forward to working with the Dulles team and the FBISD community!
