Regarding registered training not listed: I have participated in multiple Suzuki seminars in violin, viola and strings topics (including bass) in Ithaca, NY, Chicago, IL, Guelph, ON (Pre-Twinkle and Unit 1), and with Edmund Sprunger (violin) through our local association.

So, you’d like to see just how fun and easy it can be for your child or you to learn to play cello or violin? Everyone can!! Hello, I’m Will Hayes, a Cincinnati Conservatory of Music (CCM) graduate and past student artist at Chautauqua Institution, NY, and the Aspen Music Festival, CO. I’ve been extremely lucky to have learned from some of the best teachers and performers on the planet.

You will benefit from the fact that I’m a performer as well as a teacher. Connecting with audiences in the U.S. and abroad, I’ve appeared in concerts with Rock and Roll Hall of Famer and Grammy living legend Rod Stewart; Johnny Mathis; “the Jimi Hendrix” of the violin, Eileen Ivers, of Riverdance fame; male vocal quartet sensation Il Divo. I’ve also held regular and substitute orchestra positions in orchestras across the United States, including in OH, IN, OK, WY, NM, AL, NY and VT.

Thank you to all my special teachers: my students every day, my earliest teachers, and my Suzuki role models!!
