So, you’d like to see just how fun and easy it can be for you to learn to play a stringed instrument?! Every person 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; and, held numerous orchestral positions in orchestras across the United States, including in OH, IN, OK, WY, NM, and NY.

I love teaching so much that I’ve spent countless hours helping students, kindergarten through retirement age, as a certified public school music educator, guest clinician, tutor, and/or private lesson teacher in PA, OH, OK, SC, WY, CO, NM, AL, and NY, for over three decades. You can do this, and I can show you how!!
