My name is Hailey. I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelors Degree in Bassoon Performance in 2018 from The University of Akron. I have been playing bassoon for 13 years and in that time I have performed for top bassoonists such as David McGill and Martin Kuuskman. I am looking forward to sharing my knowledge and helping other to hone their craft!
My performance resume is quite extensive and includes such ensembles as: The La Jolla Symphony,The San Diego Concert Band, The Villa Musica Symphony and Symphonic Band, The University of Akron Symphony Orchestra, and The Renova Festival Orchestra among many more. I have also been selected to audition for the Dallas Symphony, Redlands Symphony, Seattle Symphony, and the West Virginia Symphony (The latter 3 canceled due to Covid-19)

About Hailey S.

Hi!! I am Hailey! I graduated Cum Laude with a Bachelor’s Degree in Bassoon Performance from the University of Akron in 2018. I have been playing bassoon for 13 years and piano for 19. I myself took private lessons on bassoon for 7 years and piano for 11. I have had the privilege to tutor Class Piano and Keyboard Harmony students and hold the post of pianist at Poe Methodist Church for 9 years. On bassoon, I have performed with several semi-professional ensembles, performed for some of the most famous bassoonists in the country, and have been invited to audition for several professional orchestras such as: The Redlands Symphony, Seattle Symphony, West Virginia Symphony, and the Dallas Symphony. I love sharing my knowledge with new students and my lessons include ear training, music theory, and even reed making! I look forward to meeting you!

She’s insanely talented and very focused on her craft. Also super patient with you. She makes sure that you grasp what you’re learning and I couldn’t ask for a better teacher. Thank you, Hailey!

I have worked with Hailey as a colleague for several years, now, and I have never had a negative experience. Hailey is always prepared, punctual, and knowledgeable.
