Hi, I’m Hannah Haefele! (My last name rhymes with safely, FYI!)
I spent ten years bouncing between different instruments before I started playing flute. Among others, I played violin, piano, drums, and saxophone. I took private lessons, sang in elementary school choir, and played in beginning strings class.
After starting saxophone, I joined my small high school’s contemporary music class. With a class size of eight, we didn’t have enough people for a concert band. It was during a break between band rehearsals that I first picked up the flute. I found my director’s old flute from college (a Bundy), and I fell. In. Love.
I decided to major in music as a flute performance major, and I loved every second of it. But along the way, I also decided to start a blog. That blog started as a personal journal and morphed into a college blog and now into what you may know as Hannah B Flute.
As much as I love playing flute and teaching it to others, I’ve also fallen in love with writing about music. I turned my passion for writing into a job my senior year when I worked as an opinion writer for my college newspaper.
After graduating, I continued to write for my own blog, and I’ve also been published in The Flute View and Huffington Post. I started freelance writing in fall of 2018, and that decision solidified my love of writing and music.
So, I figure why not combine my two biggest passions?
That has led me to become a music journalist and content writer. Two very different niches, but both very important types of writing.
Now, I help musicians and music companies get the digital exposure they need with written content. Whether you want to grow your company blog or promote your new album, I’m the writer for you.
