About me...

I am a musician/composer/creative curator living and working in Galway, in the West of Ireland. Alongside my professional conducting work, I create music projects and site specific compositions and experiences, using performance as a catalyst for creativity. 

My musical training was in the UK with a BMus in composition and violin performance from City University London, and an MMus in conducting from the Royal Northern College of Music, Manchester. But it was my experiences living in Berlin that really shaped my musical life. 

Now I'm back home in Ireland, and enjoying building a varied career as a conductor and creative musician. 

To learn more about my  conducting work, visit my website www.sineadhayes.net.
