I love my singing lessons with Hayley. Having spent my whole life thinking I was one of those people who just couldn’t sing, it’s brilliant that Hayley is so positive and encouraging. Her lessons are really flexible, so I can suggest songs I’d like to practise and we experiement with recorded backings, as well as having Hayley accompany me on the keyboard. I know I’ve got a long way to go, but Hayley reeally makes me feel I’ll get there in the end!

Hayley has been teaching my daughter to sing for nearly 4 years now, it’s been a joy to see her confidence in singing grow and Hayley gets the balance of technical and fun just right, my daughter’s had great results in the singing exams she’s done with Hayley and always looks forward to her lessons.

Hayley’s lessons are just great, I always look forward to them and leave with a spring in my step. They are really professional but at the same time so much fun.

I just wanted to explore how to sing a little, having never done any in my life. At the age of 64 it turns out I can actually sing, all thanks to Hayley. She is really knowledgeable and more importantly has a way to communicate the techniques required to find or improve your voice at your own pace.

Hayley has been teaching my 5 year old to sing for around 12 months. Her lessons are always fun, engaging and accessible. Hayley knows just how to pitch the learning to get the most out of my daughter and she always chooses songs that she can enjoy learning. Hayley is an excellent teacher who I would thoroughly recommend’. From Maggie – ‘Hayley is the best’.

We initially booked singing lessons with Hayley to help my daughter with the echo part of her Grade 2 music exam as she was struggling to “find” her voice. Hayley has been wonderful in releasing that shyness and giving her the confidence not only to sing but to sing out and be proud! As a result, my daughter has been selected for singing a descant part at school, something she wouldn’t have achieved previously and went to her music exam without any fear. She has loved her singing lessons with Hayley so much, she now wants to pursue singing as her second instrument.
