Hayley started the AllStar Choir at Tillingbourne Junior School in 2009 and has since encouraged many children, from numerous schools, to sing in the contemporary choir performing at various events and occasions. She has an infectious enthusiasm that children can not help but be engaged by, encouraging both boys and girls, who wouldn’t normally, to participate in singing within the nurturing environment of the choir. Hayley regularly runs AllStar Choir singing assemblies at Tillingbourne and I can highly recommend them - to succeed with a school of 360 children and staff enjoying singing in harmony during a 10 minute assembly is a fantastic sight and sound!

  1. Hayley Steere - Owner
    Company owner Hayley loves nothing more than giving people the opportunity to sing. After studying at The B.R.I.T Performing Arts School for a BTEC in Performing Arts and then at The Academy of Contemporary Music for a Higher National Diploma and a Degree in vocal performance, Hayley combined her two passions, singing and teaching. Hayley recently performed in The Freedom Game Opera at The Royal Albert Hall in front of The Earl and Countess of Wessex and again at Runnymede Meadow during a live TV broadcast in front of The Queen, The Duke of Edinburgh, The Duke of Cambridge, The Arch Bishop of Canterbury and David Cameron to celebrate the 800th anniversary of the sealing of the Magna Carta.

Do you give the children the lyrics of the songs? 
On occasion we may email the parents and guardians the lyrics of songs for performances or particulary (lyricially) challenging songs , but our teachers are trained to teach the lyrics with methods that do not require the children to read them.
