Hayden commenced Directorship of the choir in April 2019. He has varied directing experience spanning barbershop, musical theatre and black comedy as well as strong secondary skills like performance and marketing that make him a good fit for our choir.
With his own vocal coaching business he has been developing unique and innovative ways to teach singing. While he has many young students, he also loves working with adults who have waited their entire lives to start singing for the first time. As the Assistant Director of The Blenders – a large, all-male a cappella choir, full of adults and retirees often new to singing, Hayden is experienced with the challenge of introducing singing later in life. An important quality to help improve the skill level of a community choir like Voice Weavers.
Hayden continues to build on the awesome work of our past directors Brett and India Logan.
