Teaching style: 

Hayley takes care to structure lessons according to the goals and learning style of each student. She uses the Suzuki repertoire in conjunction with scales, sight-reading development, etudes, popular tunes, and any other materials which might benefit the student’s path. In particular, Hayley enjoys working with children and beginners, helping them develop a strong foundation in order to ensure enjoyment of the instrument and a bright future full of musical possibilities.

Hayley loves to see her students experience all the great benefits playing music. She encourages students of any level to participate in performance opportunities such as youth symphonies, chamber groups, string bands, and recitals. Whether her students dream of being classical virtuosos or just want to have fun playing music with their friends, Hayley strives to help her students discover their own musical paths and reach their full potential in whatever they do.
