Hayes Greenfield is a professional musician, sound artist, composer, educator, and producer who has been working and living in New York City since the late 1970s. Hayes has released 10 critically acclaimed CD's under his own name and traveled throughout the US, Canada, and Europe performing at festivals, concerts, and clubs with his own bands.
As sideman, Hayes has built enduring associations with such notable artists as Jaki Byard, Rashied Ali, Paul Bley, Dave Liebman, Barry Altschul, Tony Scott, Richie Havens, and Joe Lee Wilson among others. Hayes has earned awards in all of his endeavors including the prestigious New York University SCPS/GSP 2005 Marc Crawford Jazz Educators Award.
In 1998, Hayes created his widely acclaimed Jazz-A-Ma-Tazz program, a lively, interactive educational jazz and music performance/workshop/professional development program. To date, Jazz-A-Ma-Tazz has inspired well over 250,000 (and climbing!) young people.
In 2006 Hayes developed the Greenfield Method, a method for non-music, general pre-K thru 1st Grade teachers to work with sound with their students. The Greenfield Method enhances children's abilities with the basic core attributes of Executive Function-focus, active and working memory, self-regulation and inhibitory control, creative and cognitive flexibility, as well as improving hand-eye coordination and helping to raise self-esteem.
As film composer, Hayes has scored more than 70 films, documentaries, commercials, and TV specials, many of which have received awards, including the prestigious Emmy and Telly. Scores include The American Nurse (2014), the PBS films America Rebuilds: A Year at Ground Zero (2002); Return to Ground Zero (2006); Building Alaska (2010); and Alaska, the World, and Wally Hickel (2013).
