Personal Statement

Hello, my name is Hailey and I have been teaching cello both privately and in schools for 17 years. I have a Doctor of Musical Arts degree in performance and a teaching studio of 20+ students. I belive music lessons should be both fun and well-structured. I encourage students to be creative and artistic in music making to teach them that music is fun. Yet, I stress the importance of regular practice and of parents’ involvement so the student can have a routine and structure. I am very patient and responsible. Having taught a couple of autistic students, I know how important it is to curve to each student’s needs and ability. Acknowledging that each student is different and unique, and being responsive to those differences are important qualities an instructor should possess. Also, in working with kids especially, patience is golden. Having taught for many years, I realize that sometimes I learn from my students, and the best thing I learned is patience. I am responsible in keeping the lesson time (or give at least a 48-hour notice in case a lesson time needs to be changed or cancelled) and I expect the same from the student.

Education / Training

I have Bachelor of Music (2003) and Master of Music (2005) degrees from Indiana University and a Doctor of Musical Arts degree (2011) from Boston University.
