I am devoted to establishing inclusive and compassionate spaces that celebrate singing and songwriting as universal birthrights belonging to us all. I offer personalized private lessons, group lessons, workshops, clinics, and retreats, all designed to facilitate the safe exploration of singing, songwriting, and self-expression within a supportive environment. You can see my upcoming offerings below.

Private Lessons

With a formal education in music and extensive experience as an independent artist , all of my knowledge is available to my students.  That means they can study singing, songwriting, performance, piano, guitar, ukulele, music theory, composition, recording basics, and artistry- often at the same time. Most of my students end up studying several of these topics simultaneously. 

Lessons are customized to the unique needs and goals of every student.

Queer Creative Circles 
Every First Saturday @ 6:30PM in Eugene

Do you have something queer that you've created or simply love and want to share with fellow queer folks? Maybe that queer thing is you! Join us for a night of embracing and celebrating queer joy facilitated by local artists Osprey and Hannah Sophia

Bring your favorite songs, poems, and musical instruments – originals and covers are all welcome! This is an inclusive space for voices of all abilities, though please be aware that some content may not be suitable for children. 

We'll have opportunities for both individual and group singing, music, and jamming. Feel free to bring a nut-free snack to share. Donations for the space are appreciated but not expected. Email me a bit about yourself, and why you hope to join at hannahsophiamusic@gmail.com, to get an invitation. 

Upcoming Retreats

NW Songwriter Soiree Retreats
Winter Retreats and Summer Camp

What began in 2009 as a monthly living room potluck, has turned into one of the largest communities of songwriters and lovers of music in the Pacific Northwest! This event is not a typical “songwriting retreat.” The Soiree is a place for ANYONE to enjoy the art and craft of songwriting, to learn music, and to enjoy community and connection! We hope you will become a member of our community and join our semi-annual retreat.

What makes the soiree so special is the music, yes…and even more, it’s the PEOPLE! Our mission is to support songwriters of all skill levels and genres, create an inspiring and supportive experience, and provide a safe space where individuals can express themselves through music and storytelling.

Whether you are a songwriter yet or not, this event is for you! Yes, it’s a songwriting retreat. And it’s also a creative arts and community retreat. The retreat provides an opportunity to learn the craft of songwriting, to develop and expand musical skills, and to commune and share with others, yourself, and nature, in an intimate and connected way. 

The focus of the retreat is on the SHARING aspect. In addition to the AMAZING songwriting and music workshops offered, the main event is an open mic session each night wherein participants share songs they have written, or are working on…followed by all night campfire jams!

Also note that sharing a song or writing a song isn’t required at all. How you participate is up to you! Just listen, bring your presence, give feedback, relax, learn and enjoy!

All of this magic is set in a location that provides an environment conducive to creativity, support and relaxation!

CQC Retreats
Creative Queer Collective

In December, 2023 I hosted the first Queer Creative Retreat. It was such a smashing success that I and other attendees formed a non profit and plan to continue to create collborative, pay what you can, no minimum retreats, centering queerness and creativity. You can check out our website below to see upcoming offerings.
