Originally from Melbourne, Hayley began playing the Double bass at the age of eleven.
She developed her skills as an orchestral player through her involvement in the Melbourne and Australian Youth Orchestra programs.
In 2021, she completed her Bachelor of Music Performance at the Sydney Conservatorium of Music, where she studied with Alex Henery and Kees Boersma. Since living in Sydney, Hayley has performed with the Sydney Symphony, Canberra Symphony and Sydney Scoring Orchestras.
Recently, she remotely participated in the Domaine Forget and Orford Musique Academies in Canada, allowing her to perform in masterclasses for Joel Quarrington, Paul Ellison, David Allen Moore, and Peter Lloyd.
Hayley looks forward to developing a greater appreciation for live artistry within her generation and is excited for the experience she will gain through the Fellowship in 2022.
