HAILEY WONG PIANO STUDIO


"Hailey is an amazing piano teacher and mentor for anyone seeking greater achievement and enjoyment in piano studies.  She is very experienced and professional which is evident in her lesson plans and the results she creates in her students.  My daughter had an awakening during her time with Hailey.  She took a long time to complete assigned pieces because they didn't interest her.  As soon as Hailey found a composer who "spoke" to her, Hailey started teaching my daughter songs from this composer.  Now my daughter enthusiastically goes to the piano by herself to practice all day long.  Hailey can effectively diagnose technical problems and provides explicit instructions on how to practice.  She has an enthusiasm that inspires students.  We all need teachers who take the opportunity to nurture students into better musicians.  The recitals are a real delight, the range of music her students are exposed to and obviously have come to enjoy & master is quite something!"

"A great teacher is one that is one that is able to motivate and inspire her students and in that aspect, Hailey is simply remarkable. 

Both my 7 year olds started with Hailey back in September 2014 (after 2 years of group music) and within a few months, she is successful in motivating and preparing them for the Grade 1 RCM exam. With Hailey, it is never too early to learn (and master) new techniques – their legs may not be long enough to control the pedals, but that does not stop her from introducing them to the pedals – she has a pedal extender in her studio just to cater to her students 4” and below. To add, she strongly encouraged them to using a metronome early on – one may find that tick-tock-tick of the metronome to be rather distracting but the children well adjusted to it. Her great patience, coupled with her cheerful personality is the main reason why she is so successful with my children!  

They adore her and with such positive teacher-student dynamics, it's no wonder they are enjoying their musical journey tremendously."

"Thank you for being such a great piano teacher.  My girls (age 8 & age 5) have enjoyed every lesson with you in the past years.  They love and always look forward to every lesson and recital.  I love all the lovely stickers and little prizes that you awarded them for their achievements as they do motivate the girls to practice :)   Thanks for your hard work and patience."

"Thank you so much for beginning my musical journey a few years ago and teaching me so much after I got started!  Without you, I would not be able to play the pieces I now play, and enjoy the music I am able to make.  Of course, I still have a long way to go, but thanks for teaching me this marvelous thing called "music".


You have made learning and playing music extremely enjoyable for me, and our lessons together were pleasant and well-explained.  In fact, your love of music has rubbed off on me and inspired me to compose my own music!  All the musical concepts you mentioned were very clearly explained, and I feel that you have given me a great start in my musical life!


Because of you, my life will be musical forever.  Thanks for everything and for being such a great teacher!"

"My daughter has been learning piano with Hailey for 6 years. I am very thankful for the love of music Hailey has instilled in my daughter and for the inspiration she has given to her to continue learning piano. 

Hailey is a very dedicated teacher. She is very organized and always encourages students to develop their music abilities to the top of their potential. She makes music playing enjoyable.

Hailey also teaches my daughter music theory. She explains music theory concept clearly. Her teaching method helps my daughter to appreciate music and inspired her to compose her own music."

"I would like to express my gratitude of your piano lessons given to my daughters, Clare and Connie, who are 11 and 9 years old respectively.  I see a great deal of improvement on their piano skills under your supervision since last December.  They both enjoy going to your class because not only do they learn the skills and techniques of playing the piano, they love the way you convey these knowledge to them.  It is important to have chemistry between the teacher and student in any type of learning experiences, and I have to say that Clare and Connie are lucky to have you as their piano mentor!  Unfortunately, we are moving to Toronto this summer and regrettably we have to find another piano teacher for them once we settle down in the new place.  I wish we will be lucky again in finding a great piano teacher like you to continue their piano adventure.  Wishing you all the best!"

"Thank you for being my piano teacher throughout these past years.  I have enjoyed my experience with you, as you have made it more enjoyable for me.  I appreciate all the times you were patient with me when I was unfocused.  Although I have decided not to continue on with piano lesson, I will still cherish this skill and continue to play during my life.  Thanks again."

"My children have been studying piano with Hailey about 4 years.  She has been a kind, patient and inspirational musical force in their lives.  She explains concepts clearly and thoroughly.  I am not often present to sit through the lesson with them so I record them via digital voice recorder to monitor their progress.  She is always gentle but manages to motivate by learning about their musical personalities and choosing appropriate pieces to represent their individual styles.  Their confident performances at RCM exams, recitals, and festivals are a great reflection of Hailey's hard work and dedication.  Most importantly, the children enjoy learning from her!"

"Hailey was our piano teacher for seven years until both children completed their Grade 8 RCM certificate.

Prior to meeting Hailey, both my children, ages seven and ten, had become disinterested in playing piano. Hailey connected with the children and encouraged them to play well by having them perform at recitals and by recognizing their accomplishments with stickers, prizes, and trophies.  Hailey took the initiative to get to know the children and found pieces they could relate to and that matched their playing style. I was so impressed when Hailey gave my son, an avid hockey player, the theme to, “Hockey Night in Canada”, to learn.  My son was determined to learn the piece and it gave him another perspective to playing piano. Her approach to combine instruction with fun worked. Hailey is organized, professional, patience, cheerful and enthusiastic. It was a pleasure knowing Hailey and her family and I miss our weekly lessons. 

Thank you for adding music to our lives."
