David Hahn was educated as a practicing musician and a music scholar at Brown University, The New England Conservatory of Music, The Guildhall School of Music and Drama, and Stanford University. A former faculty member of the Early Music Department at The New England Conservatory, he received the doctorate in historical musicology from Stanford University in 1993.
