About the Sisters
Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. -Colossians 3:16-17
At age six Sarah took her first Suzuki method piano lesson and went on to study piano under various teachers for a total of twelve years.
Sarah began teaching her siblings piano in 2002. Then in 2003, founded Hulin Sisters Music where she maintained a studio of 35-45 students of varying ages and skill levels.
Sarah is now married and lives in Kansas City, Missouri, where she resumed teaching and began her new studio, Sarah Haynes Music.
Sarah enjoys hymn improvisation and arranging but especially loves piano accompanying. She loves playing piano for church specials, local junior highs/high school events, weddings and for various ministry opportunities.
Sarah has a passion for teaching in general, but on the top of her list is teaching the piano!
At a young age, Hannah started lessons on the violin and piano. She has studied under Dr. Cease and Barbara Dobyns. She has had various opportunities to share her music in churches, as an accompanist in local schools, weddings, parties and gatherings. She is a member of the Conroe Symphony Orchestra.
She began teaching private music lessons in 2004 and has held a studio of forty-five violin and piano students for the past 13 years.
Hannah's most recent Business venture has been working full-time at a Consulting firm. This unfortunately means she has had to transfer most of her music students to sisters. She still enjoys teaching a few students and playing for various events that come up.
Hannah also enjoys playing piano frequently for her church.
Leah started taking piano lessons at age three but took a break after her teacher married and moved out of state.
She resumed her studies under a new teacher again at 12 years of age and has been studying ever since.
Leah's all-time favorite piano piece is "Moonlight Sonata".
She enjoys playing oboe for the Conroe Symphony Orchestra, singing specials for church and co-leading a kid's choir at church with Rebekah.
Leah began teaching piano in 2007 and currently maintains a studio of about thirty students. Seeing her students progress is a huge bright spot in her week!
Like her sisters, Rebekah grew up learning piano. singing, and playing a secondary instrument, the flute. She had a longtime goal of learning the cello, so when her brother went off to college, leaving his cello behind, it was the perfect opportunity to start cello lessons. She has now purchased her own cello and thoroughly enjoys playing at Church and various events.
Rebekah is now married and lives in the Fort Worth area, where she has her own music studio!
Susannah has been blessed to study music since a very young age.
She enjoys playing piano and viola for her church and events with siblings. Her “unwind” moments are usually spent composing and arranging hymns and other music.
She has enjoyed the opportunity to further her music education in piano composition and voice with a private instructor.
Susannah also enjoys playing some Guitar, Mandolin and Fiddle.
It thrills Susannah to pass on the gift of music to others and she is grateful to be able to do that on a weekly basis with around 20 music students. She also loves helping facilitate and instruct several classes for an intense College-level Summer music course in East Texas. Susannah's goal is to glorify God through excellence in music!
Lydia has been studying music since a very young age. She first learned Piano, and then Violin. She has also played some Trombone.
Lydia is the 'life of the party' and brings a smile wherever she goes; whether she is practicing quartet with her sisters or meeting someone for the first time!
When Lydia is not teaching music, you can most likely find her behind a camera, capturing a memory somewhere. She is excited to see her photography business grow.
In whatever Lydia is doing, she likes to have a friend or partner along with. This is why she loves playing duets with siblings and friends.
Lydia is now married and still living in Texas. She loves doing life with her new little family!
For as long as she can remember, music has been apart of Johanna's life. From listening to siblings practice and teach, Johanna has loved music from a young age.
Johanna plays piano, violin and viola with a touch of banjo! Johanna's care for detail is manifests itself in both her performing and teaching. Her favorite part about being a music teacher is passing on something she is passionate about--MUSIC!
Johanna also plays in her church orchestra and for various events such as weddings, graduations, funerals etc.
Her main goal in life is to glorify God in everything she does!

Are there any Hulin brothers?
Yes! We're blessed with two brothers. While none of them teach music with us (yet!) they play music with us! Living in a big family is such a blessing and so much fun! There is never a dull moment around our house!
What kind of things do we enjoy doing as a family?
Camping, canoeing, hiking, basketball, volleyball, Spikeball baking and playing instruments together. It's a whole lot of fun! Other hobbies that aren't as much "whole family activities" but ones that the sisters enjoy are sewing, cross-stitching, beading, needlework, American Sign Language, letter writing, rubber stamping, reading and spending time with friends and family.
