I'd like to firstly introduce myself my name is Hayley and I'm the owner of Rock Vox Academy.
I have always had a passion for singing and I still do today. I began my own singing journey when I was 4 years old and I fondly remember dressing up in my mums old coats and singing into a hairbrush.
I began singing lessons myself at aged 10 but had always from a young age taken part in choirs and chamber choirs. It wasn't until I began myself taking singing lessons that it gave me the confidence to perform solos duets and quartets. I loved and embraced many styles from folk to opera to rock pop to musicals and I once sang a beautiful Gaelic song. These I believe helped me become the singer I am today having that vocal tuition from three very different singing teachers and it really helped.
At secondary school I auditioned for the school Rock band and I got the lead singer part singing Sheryl Crows' Favorite Mistake. This made me realise that singing needed to be part of my life and music.
I moved onto study Popular Music and Recording at Clarendon College in Nottingham and achieved a BTEC qualification. I got to experience working in many different styles of bands and performed regularly around Nottingham, Grantham and even did a tour around Germany.
I achieved a place at Salford University in Manchester to then study a BA in Popular Music and Recording and was offered an unconditional place. I gigged in several venues across Manchester.
I came back from Manchester and began singing teaching within two local schools three days a week (formerly Central Technology College) now known as Priory Ruskin and at Belvoir High School. I also taught privately at the time too and had one student go on to MADD.
I decided to have a family and so I stopped teaching. I opened up my Rock Vox Academy Studio in March 2016 and it is wonderful seeing my students developing their skills. I now gig locally with my original indie band called Free 2 Decide.
If you too would like to come and experience a singing lesson at Rock Vox Academy please do feel free to get in touch .
I currently teach Mondays, Wednesdays and Thursdays from home and at the Priory Ruskin Academy in Grantham on Fridays.
Rock Vox Academy is my business and I have been teaching singing now for eight years. I will help you to achieve your full singing potential.
We’d love to hear from you!
