Clare is a great violinist and a great instructor for anyone serious about learning to play well. I studied less than a year with her because she moved out of our area, but I was very sorry to see her go as I had learned more from her in a short time than from others in much longer periods of time. I will always be glad I had the chance to work with her. What I found most helpful was her emphasis on how to position fingers, hands, arms, and whole body correctly so as to use my energy efficiently and achieve the best outcomes. My intonation improved enormously, as did my use of my bow. I am a senior adult who took up the violin after I retired (and am so happy I did). I think Clare would work very well with anyone who wants to work hard at learning the violin (tho a child who was only mildly interested in playing might get frustrated at the intensity of the effort Clare puts into her teaching). I have also watched Clare play in concert. Her playing is beautiful to behold.
