Hailey Mayle grew up in northern Colorado with her older brother and younger sister. Her passion for music began at a young age when her older brother start piano lessons and loved to sit in on his lessons. She shortly followed his example, beginning piano at age 7. Throughout middle school, high school and college, she learned to play flute, cello, percussion, guitar, and organ, though mostly just for fun.
Hailey has a Bachelor’s Degree in Piano Performance from Brigham Young University where she studied with Richard Anderson, Jared Pierce, Irene Peery-Fox, Stephen Beus and Scott Holden. She has accompanied both vocalists and instrumentalists and enjoys learning to collaborate with other musicians. Her specialty is classical piano and she loves to work with kids who have learning and developmental disabilities!
When Hailey first started at BYU, it was in the Music Composition program. After serving a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints in New Hampshire and Maine, Hailey felt she needed to switch to piano performance so she would be able to better share her talents and love of music with those looking to have fuller, happier lives.
Hailey’s main goals with teaching piano center on developing better musical skills, and understanding and appreciation of music while also improving social, emotional, and learning skills. She believes in and has experienced the power of music in healing, understanding herself, and strengthening her social and intellectual skills. In general, she just wants others to have access to music as a tool when life gets hard and people look for a way to understand and express themselves.
In her spare time, Hailey loves to read, hike, travel, cook (and eat!) and spend time with family and friends. She has dabbled in the German language and is working to become fluent in American Sign Language (ASL) so she can also be an interpreter for the deaf.
