Hayley can be found performing all over London, from on stage in the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra with Charles Dutoit conducting, to playing in West End shows such as The Producers, Carousel and My Fair Lady.

Since completing her studies at The Royal Academy of Music, Hayley has been busy building her career in all areas of music. She regularly plays in London’s Theatres performing in ballets at the Royal Opera House, Covent Garden to plays at the National Theatre on the South Bank. 

She is equally at home with more commercial/studio work recording film sound tracks and most recently playing on Annie Lennox’s latest album.
