Our Teachers


Hello! I'm Sarah Murley-Hauser!

I am the Director here at Willowdale School of Music and also a violin teacher on staff.

I was inspired by my first violin teacher, Heidi Behrenbruch, and I am driven by a desire to deliver excellent music lessons to all students. My on-going teacher development continues to take me all over North America. Continuing my professional development regularly as both a music teacher and a business owner inspires me to offer excellence and invite a love of music in Willowdale.

Since 2012, the Richmond Hill Suzuki Studio studio has grown into the Willowdale School of Music. Here is to many more years of music-making in Willowdale!

When I'm not teaching, I love taking care of my indoor jungle of plants, tending my outdoor tomato garden, walks with my husband and dog, reading and cooking.

I am so excited for you to get to know the Willowdale School of Music teachers better!
