I am a professional bassist, guitarist, singer, songwriter and recording artist. I graduated from Belmont University in Nashville, TN with a Bachelors of Music Business, with an emphasis on Recording and Audio Production, and spent several years running live sound and performing with bands in Nashville. I've toured nationally and internationally, playing festivals and opening for major acts, Sharon Jones & the Dap-Kings, Joan Jett, The Doobie Brothers, Robin Trower and more. In addition to a well-rounded experience as a live musician, I've also written, recorded, and performed on a variety of full-length albums, EPs, and singles, and have had music featured on TV shows, in a video game, and on the Kansas City Royals’ 2019 Super Bowl commercial. After years of playing and performance, I first began teaching a few music lessons in 2012, helping a colleague expand her teaching studio. Over the past 10 years, teaching and coaching aspiring musicians and songwriters has come to be one of the most meaningful things in my life. I love playing and performing music because of the way that it connects people, and I love teaching because it allows me to share my knowledge and passion for music with others in a meaningful way. I teach students of all ages and personalize each lesson plan to help each student meet their goals in a positive and fun learning environment.

Claire is lovely! She's super fun and energetic. I'm so happy that she likes to teach via songs that you like. I'm so excited to continue learning bass guitar with her. :D
Claire was great !! It was only my first lesson with her, but she helped me understand the numbering of chords in different keys, and how that works. We had a few video hiccups, but overall, it went really well. Can't wait for my next lesson !!
Claire is awesome!!! She’s super knowledgeable, flexible with what you want to learn, and makes lessons fun. I’ve been taking bass/guitar lessons with her online for a while and my playing has improved soooo much! She has also helped me fill in a lot of the gaps in my understanding of theory. I highly highly recommend working with Claire!
