Biography

Described as “impressive and expressive” (Fanfare Magazine) and “superb...[with] great dexterity, rhythm, and touch” (American Record Guide), Hannah Creviston is clinical assistant professor of piano pedagogy, director of the Music Prep Program and coordinator of Class Piano at Arizona State University. She received her bachelor's in piano performance and music education with a piano pedagogy concentration from the Crane School of Music at SUNY Potsdam, studying with Eugenia Tsarov. A researcher and presenter on the effects of music on children with autism, she holds an master's in piano performance and a master's in early childhood/elementary music education from the University of South Carolina where she studied piano with Scott Price. Prior to joining ASU in 2012, Creviston was on the faculty at the Crane School of Music.

As a soloist, she won the Crane Annual Concerto Competition and was a finalist in the Arthur Fraser Piano Competition. An avid performer of contemporary music, Creviston has premiered many compositions, including works by Whitney Ashe, Cameron Britt, David Heinick, Katherine Hoover, John Fitz Rogers, Timothy Sullivan, Brian Vlasak and Mark Weiser. Most notably, in 2007, she premiered Stacy Garrop’s Pieces of Sanity at Carnegie Hall with saxophonist Christopher Creviston.

As an accompanist, she has performed in festivals and competitions throughout the United States and abroad, including the World Saxophone Congress, International Viola Congress, Music Teachers National Association Solo Competition, North American Saxophone Alliance (NASA) Biennial Conferences, NASA Solo Competition, Navy Band Saxophone Symposium, Great Plains Saxophone Workshop, Potsdam Single Reed Summit, Penn State Single Reed Summit, Crane Saxophone Chamber Music Festival, Dutchess County Saxophone Day and the Southeastern Piano Festival. She has collaborated with various artists, including Elizabeth Buck, Christopher Creviston, Geoffrey Diebel, Joe Lulloff, Jeffrey Loeffert, Timothy McAllister, David Pittman-Jennings, David Stambler, Deanna Swoboda, James Umble, Robert Young, and members of the United States Military Bands.

A published author, Ms. Creviston has presented on topics such as “Music Learning Theory”, “Teaching Music to Children with Special Needs”, “How to Teach Proper Practice Techniques” and others. She has presented at conferences such as the World Piano Conference (Novi Sad, Serbia), Music Teachers National Association National Conferences, Texas Music Teachers Association Conference and the Arizona State Music Teachers Association Conferences, to name a few.

She performs regularly in a duo with her husband, Christopher Creviston. Together, they have recorded Snell Sessions and Columbia Sessions, both on the Albany Records label, and Sunday Afternoon and Breaking, available through CD Baby. Their recordings have been described as “engrossing” (Fanfare Magazine), “highly imaginative and expressive” (composer Denis Bédard), “a good blend of the standard and the new” (American Record Guide), and “sensitive, transparent, powerful music making that causes one to hold their breath often” (Donald Sinta).
