Hayley Ayres

01462 769017


Hayley joined The Music Train in 2009 after relocating from Hertfordshire to Cornwall. She pioneered our first classes in Bude, which continue to thrive. On returning to Hertfordshire in September 2013, Hayley took over as teacher of the Great Ashby branch.

Music is very much in Hayley's family. She played the piano to Grade 7 and the trumpet to Grade 3. Hayley taught one of her brothers to play the piano and the other brother has enjoyed a career in musical theatre with lead appearances in Starlight Express, Eurobeat and Hair in the West End. Hayley's children are also following in her footsteps having both attended The Music Train from an early age. Her eldest son, now 11 has been playing the drums for 4 years and her youngest son, nearly 7 is enjoying learning the piano.

On leaving school, Hayley enjoyed working as a Redcoat (children's entertainer) for a summer season & then went on to take Early Childhood Studies at Further Education. She has worked as a nanny and in a nursery, and with a lovely sunny personality, is very much a "people person". Clients have described her as "The Dumbledore of pre-schoolers." "She recognises each child as individual and special, igniting the spark needed to grow confidence, independence and interest, inspiring every child".

Registration Fee

Families joining our classes for the very first time are invited to try a single session before deciding whether or not they wish to sign up for the rest of the term. If you do wish to join for the term, an additional £6 registration fee is charged for families that have never previously attended. This is only ever charged once per family and future siblings do not need to pay a registration fee. The fee covers the cost of access to our client on-line resources and one child's T-shirt. Additional T-shirts can be purchased for £5.

Cancelled classes

We regret that if classes have to be cancelled due to force majeure such as snow, or on specific medical advice because of the risk posed by swine flu, they cannot be refunded.
