IVA Voice teacher and performance coach
Hannah Bayles is a certified voice teacher through the Institute for Vocal Advancement, specializing in musical theatre and contemporary music. The IVA method is widely recognized as one of the most successful vocal techniques - creating beautiful, healthy voices using the mix technique. Hannah is also a music director, most recently music directing The Addams Family (Midvale Main Street Theatre) and is in the process of music directing many more in the next year.
Hannah is an accomplished performer and can be seen in shows across Utah county. Some of her past credits include Emma in Jekyll and Hyde (The Grand Theatre), Ariel in The Little Mermaid (SCERA), and Fiona in Shrek the Musical (Centerpoint Legacy Theatre).
Hannah's teaching, directing and performance experience shines through when she is coaching her students. She is able to communicated clearly and concisely instruction in an easily understandable way.
She is kind, personable and constructive and she has helped me improve a ton. My voice felt stronger after the first lesson. I recommend her to everyone!
I took vocal training for 3 1/2 years while in high school and I feel like I've improved more in my singing in the first month with Hannah than in that entire time. She knows what's she is listening for and knows how to tailor her help to individual struggles and setbacks. Hannah will listen to what you want and your goals as a singer and then provide a detailed map to help you reach them.
Hannah is professional and very easy to work with.
