Piano Instruction with Abbey Hayden

Music, Dance & Performing Arts

Piano lessons in Ms. Abbey's studio focus on obtaining a musical education through creativity and goal-based learning. With guidance and imagination, every student is capable of creating joy through music; with grit and dedication, each student is capable of greatness.

Abbey Hayden has been an educator for 16 years, and has studied piano her entire life. Her most recent studies culminated in a Master's of Music in Piano Performance (as well as a Certificate in Piano Pedagogy) at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. She now serves as a staff pianist at her alma mater. Her undergraduate degree is a Bachelor of Arts in Music from Millikin University, with a dual concentration in Piano and French Horn. She is also a member of the Music Teachers National Association, for both the St. Louis and Gateway Arch chapters.

As a teacher, Abbey believes in a personal connection on the individual level of the student, each student will learn something different from piano and music, and those students deserve to have lessons built just for them.

Abbey feels strongly that there is a time and place for virtuosity, but there is also much more time - and many more places - for lyricism and musicality. As any of her students will tell you "Anyone can play fast! But not everyone plays WELL."

Abbey is now accepting new students. Please email missapianostudio@gmail.com to inquire.
