Hyland Wray is a senior at Oral Roberts University and is currently working on her Bachelor of Music Education degree with a violin concentration. After graduation, she hopes to become a high school orchestra director and start working on her Master of Arts in Music Education.
Hyland has been classically trained in Suzuki Pedagogy since the age of six. After suffering a wrist injury, she spent three years studying new techniques for playing the violin and has adapted her approach to teaching to accommodate each unique student while still following the Suzuki curriculum. Her principal teaching objective is to help students acquire the skills they need to grow in their musicianship. She strives to create a safe and creative environment for students to collaborate and explore various musical interpretations.
Hyland hopes to build relationships with each of her students to get to know their unique personalities, styles, and interests so that she can tailor their lessons to their musical aspirations. When she is not teaching, Hyland enjoys performing, recording new music with her fiancé Mitchell, and spending time with her family!
