Rosalind has been my voice teacher since 2018 and I’ve learned so much from her! She’s taught me vocal techniques that I didn’t know I could do (i.e., belting, compression, riffs, etc). Rosalind has also taught me more than vocal techniques. She helped me perfect my speaking voice when I record narration and voiceover work for my job.Overall, Rosalind is a talented teacher and a wonderful person. My voice is much stronger now than it was a few years ago. Thank you for everything you’ve taught me, Rosalind!

I have been working with Rosalind for four years, and I can truly say that she is the best voice teacher I have had. Her attention to detail in every aspect of voice, whether you’re focusing on proper breathing technique or how to properly work the jaw when singing, is amazing, and has made me a much better singer. Not only does she help with singing technique, but she provides opportunities to show off your hard work in bi-annual recitals, as well as in community events. She has helped to develop me into a more diverse singer as she challenges me to step out of my comfort-zone by trying new types of songs or even trying to self-accompany on other instruments. Thanks to Rosalind’s support, I have improved my voice so much!

Have had lovely experience with Doraymi and has an extensive background so is able to approach each student according to their needs. Highly recommended!

DoRayMi has been a wonderful experience for my son. Rosalind’s approach to teaching piano is enthusiastic and fun, and my son’s musical ability and appreciation for the piano has grown so much. Highly recommend!

Rosalind has gone the extra mile in all ways. She has tailored the lessons to the specific needs of our student with continual reassessments . She has reached out and kept us informed. She provides outside resources for additional help. We have felt most fortunate to have found her!

I have been taking weekly beginner piano lessons with Rosalind Hayes for about 18 months. I had no experience previously and was limited in my ability to read music. Rosalind is patient in her instruction, identifies best teaching methods for each individual and doesn't move on to the next lesson or concept until I am comfortable with the current topic or number. I would recommend Rosalind to anyone seeking an instructor for piano regardless of level of experience or age.

I love my piano lessons and my teacher! As an adult student, I was nervous starting lessons again, but DoRayMi makes it so easy and the convenient lesson hours work out perfectly with my work schedule! My teacher really listens and works with me to find solutions for difficult areas and works really hard to keep lessons interesting and fun! I've referred all of my friends and coworkers!

We have been with DoRayMi lessons for over 4 years now for my daughter. She was 5 years old when she started learning music at DoRayMi and she is still loving it! We continued through the pandemic with virtual lessons and we have had a great experience all through! Thanks Rosalind!!

Rosalind is extremely talented musically and excellent at finding ways to communicate concepts in a way that any student can understand. She is constantly finding all sorts of creative ways to reach her students whether they are beginners or very advanced. Rosalind has a sunny personality and is always positive. I have really enjoyed my voice lessons over the past few years and wholeheartedly recommend Rosalind to anyone considering DoRayMi Lessons.

Rosalind is always professional and encouraging. My daughter has made tremendous progress in voice since starting lessons last year. I highly recommend DoRayMi!

My very shy 8 year old is taking voice lessons with Rosalind and is completely excited. Rosalind immediately put her at ease and is making the lessons fun. She is also a great parental resource and music therapist herself and is helping me the parent support and nurture my daughters goals! A++ for Doraymi and for Rosalind as a teacher.

I’ve been working with Rosalind for a few years and have seen a dramatic improvement in my voice! Very easy to work with and very enjoyable experience.

Rosalind is very detailed and professional in her class delivery. My son has been in and out of piano lessons with different teachers without much progress but she has hooked him to piano and we surely see him working towards it on his own. So kudos to her to inculcate this interest in him and would highly recommend her for hesitant parents trying to hire a piano tutor.

Rosalind was great with my daughter. She made sure my daughter understood the fundamentals of voice instruction and still made it fun. Her communication was very good and we got weekly clips of her lessons so we could practice more at home.

Rosalind is a fantastic teacher. When I started taking Vocal lessons, I had no experience in singing whatsoever. After the first 6 months she had me singing and playing the guitar in front of close to 100 people. She provides opportunities to reach your goals and dreams. I highly recommend using her services if you want to progress in music. One of the best decisions I have ever made.

Rosalind is a talented and inspiring teacher. She tailored her instructions to my needs, abilities, and wants as a beginning piano student. I'm so happy with the progress I've made with her. She's so knowledgeable and I highly recommend her. Thanks Rosalind!

Rosalind is an excellent teacher!! Incredibly knowledgable about music in its technicality, she is genuinely interested in advancing your musical abilities. She adapts the curriculum to your needs and presents creative, unique approaches to learning. I would recommend her to anyone who aspires to improve their vocal, piano, or guitar skills.
In 2007, I began my degree in vocal performance at the world renowned Westminster Choir College music conservatory. What followed was an intensive four year “music boot camp” of sorts during which I decided I wanted to work towards my masters in music therapy, and help others using my craft. I graduated in 2011, summa cum laude from the honors program and began my creative arts therapy master’s degree shortly there-after at Drexel University, where I practiced music therapy with various populations in need including elderly adults, teens, and of course, young children. My experiences working at the Philadelphia Family Court with parents and children were especially rewarding to me, and compelled me to find other opportunities to do similar work, which is why I am hosting this class!
