About Claire B.

I am a professional singer, actress, writer and producer hailing originally from the emerald isle of Ireland. I have performed internationally on various musical tours and shows (Grease, West Side Story, Chicago, Mario Lanza Anniversary Concerts, Normandy Nights, High School Musical, A Star is Born, Fame) gracing the renowned stages of my home country, Europe and the United States.

In Los Angeles I sang as lead vocalist for vintage jazz cabaret group The Beauties (2014-2018) enjoying residencies in Beverly Hills and Hollywood at some of the city's most exciting events and locations (Sofitel, 424 Beverly Hills, WeHo Halloween Carnavale, French Tuesdays, Le Petit Paris, Andaz, Spaghettini)

I have enjoyed the position of vocal coach and acting instructor at Los Angeles Center Studios for over 6 years. I also served as head vocal coach for Hollywood Performers Academy at LA Center Studios, a K-12 program for gifted students working in the entertainment industry while simultaneously completing academic requirements.

In 2016 I founded the Prep Performs program at Prep Academy, a renowned after-school program in beautiful Hancock Park. Here I taught students age 6-18 in voice, acting, public speaking, personal development and debate.

As an actress I am repped by The Agency (Ireland/UK), Mavrick Artists (US) and Ignite Artists (CA).

I am also fluent in French.

I can't wait to share my skills with you enabling you to tap into your talent and share it with the world!!!

I am currently conducting lessons via the online platform. Let's learn and grow together while staying safe.

Love Claire! I am a dancer by profession but was looking to learn to sing on the side. Claire has been wonderful! I have really enjoyed all of my lessons with her & am looking forward to continuing with singing! I would highly recommend. :)

Claire's the best! She's always upbeat and encouraging. She's great at explaining things and is super patient with a beginner like myself. You couldn't ask for a better teacher. Our sessions are always so fun and I'm sad when they end.

claire was very personable and creates a very comfortable atmosphere. Also she is able to give me great practical lessons that I can easily apply to my singing. I always look forward to our sessions as they are so much fun and I can hear the improvement with each passing week!!
