Teacher Hanna cesario

    -UKULELE-   -PIANO-    -VOICE-

Minnesota native, Hanna Cesario, brings forward a refreshing approach to a timeless instrument and genre.  The ears of her listeners perk up whenever she starts to play.  She dives deep into every song giving purpose to each phrase, each note, each word, and everything in-between.  Hanna says, “I love finding a new chart and getting familiar with it: dissecting it, twisting it around, playing with the strumming patterns and vocal inflections, exploring the lyrics to find that precise emotion to expose, and then putting it back together again to form my own interpretation…the composers and musicians of the jazz era have captured a lyric and style that gives me a thrill to perform.” 

Hanna graduated from the University of MN Duluth in 2012 with a BA in Vocal Music.  At the end of her 4th year she picked up a friends ukulele and started teaching herself how to play.  She found the ukulele and its delightful simplicity to be the perfect pairing for her sweet, clear, melodic voice.  Her solo music career started to blossom after she graduated, and in 2015 she produced and published her first Jazz album full of her own arrangements of favorite standards and one original.

Hanna now is back in her hometown of Mankato, MN actively preforming solo, with the Dan Duffy Orchestra, and Jazz 10.   In 2016 she started teaching private voice, ukulele, music theory and piano lessons; sharing her love for music with all ages.
