Claire is a wonderful guitar teacher! She worked with my 15 year old daughter who absolutely loved her. She has a wonderful ability to connect and make learning music fun. Her prices were fair and she is a truly lovely person. Hire her! You will not regret it.

I’ve been working with Claire for a year or so now, and it’s been great. Claire is excellent with both technique and theory, and has a strong emphasis on performance and really listening to what I’m doing with the guitar. Actually useful practice tips abound, and Claire is always excited to tackle a new song or technique with me. Good feelings always - and my playing has really improved as well as my feeling for what I’m doing.

Claire is a fantastic teacher! They take the time to understand your goals and push you to become the best singer/songwriter/musician you can be. I wanted to improve my singing. Claire has shown me techniques and exercises to hit notes more deliberately and confidently — with support from the rest of my body. She explains the physiology of singing (and making vocal sounds in general), and points out useful ways and tricks to improve as a singer. Their instruction — casual and fun — is informed by and based on their classic training, an excellent ear, empathy, and a “you can do this!” attitude. They’re always on time, make expectations and instructions clear, and are super dependable. I highly recommend working with Claire if you want to be a better singer and, more generally, a better musician or songwriter! Claire is technically savvy, too, and can help grow your production skills. They provide thoughtful feedback that helps your tracks become more emotive and impactful.
