Haynes was educated at Hanley Castle Grammar School. He received his early musical training from his uncle, William Haynes, organist of Malvern Priory.
He was a chorister in the Priory Church, and acted frequently as deputy organist. He studied under Franklin Taylor, Ebenezer Prout, and at the Leipzig Conservatorium under Carl Reinecke, S. Jadassohn, and others. He was awarded the Mozart Scholarship, and on leaving the Conservatorium received the highest certificate given to a pupil.
After a short residence in France, he returned to London. He served as organist at St. Philip’s Church, Upper Sydenham; professor of harmony and composition at the Royal Academy of Music; and organist and choirmaster, Chapel Royal, Savoy (1891).
