Hayley Teal – Vocal Teacher (By Appointment)
Hayley Teal is one of our Singing teachers – suited to Beginner / Intermediate / Advanced. She is available for lessons by appointment, subject to availability.
Hayley soon learnt she much preferred the noisy confines of singing on stage in clubs and bars rather than the idyllic Adelaide Hills apple orchard she grew up on. Performing in various cover bands over the past few years in Adelaide, The X Factor was Hayley’s time to shine. Her voice had everyone raving after her audition, singing Alica Keys’ “How come you don’t call me”. Hayley rates the crowd reaction as one of her most rewarding moments on her X Factor journey.
Coming from a musical family, Hayley’s singing inspirations include the soulful singers Keisha Cole, Eric Benet, Brian McKnight and, of course, Whitney Houston and Mariah Carey.
Hayley, writer and singer has both independently and in partnership with her band, written and composed over 100 songs, many featuring on her album ‘Chocolate’. ‘Chocolate’ was released in 2009, with tracks being played on radio stations around the country. Hayley is a natural born performer who feels completely at home on stage. With over seven years singing experience in the public arena, Hayley presents as a professional, talented and versatile artist with confidence, style and a unique originality.
She had a life changing experience making it to the top 6 on The X factor 2010. She now has world class training plus experience and is ready to take on the world with her music by sharing her knowledge teaching others as a Vocal teacher at The SoundLab.
