Hannah DeBoer

Musical Theatre Teacher

Hi, I’m Hannah! I grew up taking classes at Civic Theatre and am so happy to be back to now teach these classes! A lot of my background has involved singing opera (I have a Bachelor Music in Voice from Grand Valley and a Master’s in Music from Wichita State University – yes, I used to live in Kansas!), but now I am back living in the realm of musical theatre and loving it. I was a private voice instructor at GVSU, Wichita State, and various music studios before opening my own private voice studio, DeBoer Voice Studio (www.deboervoicestudio.com) where I teach private voice lessons to students of all ages. I also love choral singing, and helped start the professional choir Vox GR. I have appeared onstage at Civic Theatre most recently in Shakespeare in Love and School of Rock. Civic is a magical place – I love watching as students grow up, gain confidence, form friendships, become teacher assistants, and begin performing in and crewing MainStage Civic shows.

What inspires you?
Seeing young artists make brave choices in class or share their voice for the first time with others! It never gets old!
