Born in 1979 into a family of musicians Hanna began her piano-education at the age of six. She won prizes in Europe and the US and had a busy schedule giving solo-recitals as well as concert-performances with orchestras such as the Philharmonic Orchestra of Belarus, the Minnesota Symphony Orchestra (US) and the Chamber Orchestra ‘Amici della Musica’ (Belgium). She had the privilege to work with conductors such as Yaron Traub, Hans Leenders and Neeme Järvi. At the age of eighteen Hanna left her hometown of  Minsk. 

In 1999 she came to The Netherlands to continue her studies with Naum Grubert at the Royal Conservatory in The Hague where she graduated in June 2005 as Master of Music with the highest distinction.

In 2001 she won the two top-prizes at the YPF National Piano Competition. Shortly afterwards  she appeared as a soloist with the Netherlands Philharmonic Orchestra at the Amsterdam Concertgebouw. Since then, her numerous performances include appearances at the annual Prinsengracht  Festval, Vredenburg Utrecht, the Vereeniging Concert Hall in Nijmegen, as well as concerts in Germany, Italy, United Kingdom and the USA. 

Since 2013 Hanna has held a position as piano professor at the International Anton Rubinstein Music Academy in Düsseldorf (Germany)/Conservatorio Giacomo Puccini La Spezia (Italy).
