Haley, soprano, earned a Masters in Music from The Cincinnati Conservatory of Music and her Bachelors from the University of North Texas. She is a performer experienced in opera, oratorio, chamber music, musical theatre, jazz, and art song. She has performed leading opera roles such as: Pamina in Die Zauberflote; Rosalinde in Die Fledermaus; Juliette in Romeo et Juliette; and Helena in A Midsummer Night's Dream. Haley has performed supporting or partial roles such as: Susanna in Le Nozze di Figaro, Lieu in Turandot, Fiordiligi in Cosi fan tutte, Amina in La Sonnambula, Lakme in Lakme, Lauretta in Gianni Schicchi, Dorabella in Cosi fan tutte, and Violetta in La Traviata. After working with the Cincinnati Opera and spending some time performing in Europe, Haley has recently returned to Dallas and is excited to be teaching in a place with so many talented people again.
Please do not hesitate to contact me with any questions. Music can be such a positive influence on a person's life and I look forward to helping you find what you are looking for.

· Singing · In studio Haley is an incredibly talented instructor, communicator, and musician. Although I had taken several years off from singing, Haley immediately set me at ease with her clear guidance, patience, and outgoing personality. One of the biggest challenges I have found with voice instructors is that it can be difficult to communicate what the student should be doing. Haley is fantastic at articulating correct techniques with metaphors and descriptions that truly resonate. In addition, her positive attitude and personality make every lesson a joy. In just a short time, my confidence and vocal technique has greatly improved, demonstrating the true value that lessons with Haley provide.
· Voice · In home Haley is an outstanding instructor- she gives voice lessons to my 14 y.o. daughter. Haley is very encouraging, professional, has a great sense of humor, and she's willing to let the student choose some of the repertoire (she has an extensive knowledge of many genres); all of which help quell my daughter's performance anxiety. She's also a great administrator- stays on top of how many appointments we've had, is quick to respond when we need to reschedule, and is easily reachable by phone or email. We highly recommend Haley: she brightens our day with her positive outlook, energy, enthusiasm, and talent. Maureen Lupton
