Hannah May is originally from Pensacola, Florida where she studied violin with the well-known teacher Anna Tringas. As a teenager, she played for several years with the Pensacola Symphony Orchestra. After breaking her arm, she attended one summer course at the Meadowmount School of Music in New York to help with the recovery of her violin skills. After a while, she laid the violin down for 18 years, thinking she would never play again. However, in 1998, she began to want to play again, and her husband bought her another violin as a Christmas gift. She has been playing ever since, mostly in church settings, but also for weddings and other occasions. She has taught violin in the Panama City area for a few years. She is also a member of the Paradise Point Players, a group of former students of Anna Tringas, who play for the Anna Tringas Legacy Fund to raise scholarship money for aspiring violinists. Hannah was inspired by Mrs. Tringas' long-time investment into the lives of young students who are now playing their violins all over the world. Believing in the importance of proper technique, she would like to continue her teacher's legacy, by giving students a good technical foundation to get them started on their violin journey.
