Hello! I'm Sarah Murley-Hauser!

I am the Director here at Willowdale School of Music and I also teach violin.

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 has grown from just myself driving around to student's houses to then teaching lessons in my living room to now a growing school in the heart of North York: 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!
