Hayley Elton is a talented concert pianist with a multitude of musical talents associated with the piano. She began playing the piano at the age of seven, and by the time she was nine, she was the youngest person to gain entrance to the Guildhall School of Music.
Hayley went on to study with Eileen Reynolds, professor of music at the Royal College of Music, who introduced her to classical Spanish music, adding to Hayley’s already ever-expanding repertoire. Towards the end of her classical training, Kendall Taylor, CBE, Vice-president of the Royal College took her under his wing and Hayley was privileged to complete her training with him.
In 1987 & 88, Hayley’s much-acclaimed performance at the Stratford & East London Music Festival gained her the Chopin Prize. She then went on to take all the cups for Sonata, Open, Recital and Chopin at both the Watford & District and Ruislip & Northwood Festivals.
As well as Hayley's many books on learning to play the piano Hayley is also well know for teaching many celebrities to play piano in just a few short minutes. More recently Hayley has switched from teaching celebrities to focus on her twinkle sound CD that encourages babies to relax and aid restful sleep!
