"Hayley's class was one of the most self-discovering, freeing moments I've ever had as an
artist and human being."
- Jenna Ashlyn, Theatre Artist
I am a Designated Linklater Voice teacher and earned my M.F.A. in Acting
from the University of California, Irvine.
I teach and direct for universities and conservatory-style actor training
programs around NYC, while additionally offering private coaching for
performers and professionals both in person and over Zoom. Having
transitioned from the intense world of classical ballet into acting, improv,
and voice, my teaching centers around the compassionate investigation
of presence, courage, and truthful human communication.
I feel successful as a teacher when my students leave class feeling more
inspired, playful, and eager to express themselves.
I'm happy to offer:
PRIVATE COACHING for students of all ages and experience
GROUP CLASSES for your school, company, or corporate workplace
"Working with Hayley reminds me of the importance of being able to communicate freely, as an actor and as a human being. Working together, we've begun to free my voice and re-awaken my ability to communicate unimpeded. It's a big relief releasing all of that tension!"
- Grant Haralson, Performing Artist
"Anyone who enjoys a coaching session with Hayley has been given a gift! As an actor, coaching sessions can sometimes feel like you’re looking for someone to give you choices to make in your piece. With Hayley, it is nothing short of a collaboration. Hayley listens to your instincts as an actor, and works with you to bring out the beautiful details in your vision. I have coached scenes, monologues, songs, and more with Hayley, and every time I walk away feeling confident with my work. Hayley has a wonderful tenderness and openness as a coach that encourages you to trust your gut and play! I’m telling you — book with her YESTERDAY!!"
- Kate Cassidy Ryan, Actor
"Hayley is a wealth of knowledge! They take into account your theatrical niches and ask you about your challenges. You feel comfortable and seen with Hayley. I look forward to taking in some of these new pieces into auditions and self tapes!"
- Christie Farrell, Actor
"Hayley's intuitive nature is magic and makes the class
not only accessible, but curated to the individual."
