"I recently met Miss Hannah Williams on the occasion of our school's production of 'Bugsy Malone'. I have been truly impressed by her musicianship, technical preparation and exceptional working ethos. I have no hesitation whatsoever to recommend her for performances and productions that can benefit from the services of a talented and well prepared young musician such as Miss Hannah Williams."

"Now that the dust has settled and I am home, I just wanted to thank you again and say how much personal pleasure I got from your playing. I found the whole concert a delight. But what I particularly wanted to thank you for was the way that you interacted with Dad afterwards. The fact that you took the trouble to talk to him, including sitting/kneeling at his level and making contact by holding his hands, makes a tremendous difference to the person concerned (especially someone blind) and is not something you meet every day. It was noted by a number of people and when I asked Dad about the whole experience afterwards he said his one regret was that he ‘would have liked to have time for a much longer talk with the musicians...My huge regret is that I did not think of asking anyone to record it...So – could you possibly send me a list of every piece that you played, so that I can source them and hear them again? Once was definitely not enough!"

"Hannah is spectacular. Thanks to her collaboration in my final recital in Spain, her fantastic professionalism and magnificent clarinet performance, I obtained very good marks. She is very organised, responsible, friendly and plays amazing. I always recommend her."
