Singing · In studio

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.
