Music is my inspiration and the violin my greatest connection to it. In the course of my life, playing over 2000 concerts and teaching hundreds of students, I have learned that elasticity in our bodies and openness in our hearts can lead us to maximum expression. I hope that the musical and technical methods I share here can inspire and help you on your journey!

"Bayla Keyes is an extraordinary person and violinist. She has a deep well of knowledge and enthusiasm for her students that never runs dry, and her meticulous guidance improved all aspects of my playing. Professor Keyes’ vivid intelligence in both playing and teaching was a continual inspiration to the whole studio, and her love for the violin profoundly impacted the musician I am today."

"Throughout my five years of study with Professor Keyes, she offered me musical, technical, and physical exercises within the contexts of historical and performance practices. As a result, I have gained the knowledge and confidence to approach any repertoire with direction and confidence.Professor Keyes has shown me how to be a student, a teacher, and a musician."
