About Claire G.
2 decades of playing experience, I studied classical violin growing up and began teaching my first student at the age of 16 - I have been teaching violin to students of all ages for over 10 years of all levels and styles.
I completed all the ABRSM exams and earned an ATCL diploma from Trinity College in Classical Violin Performance.
I perform both classical and electric violin, occasionally solo, but more commonly in rock bands, quartets, orchestras and recording sessions all across Asia and America. I am able to perform and teach in varying styles and genres.
In 2013, I moved to Boston to attend Berklee College of Music, where I studied Jazz, bluegrass, gypsy jazz and middle eastern violin.
A multi-instrumentalist, I also play and teach the electric guitar, acoustic guitar and piano.
I also produce and engineer music, recording independent artists and bands based out of Boston.
I presently write and perform in two bands, an indie rock project called Paper Citizen and pop/HipHop group called Mad Yonder.
I teach privately in my studio in Palms, as well as at a music studio in West LA. I also travel to student’s homes.
I love playing music and I always hope to inspire a similar level of interest and enthusiasm with my students by exploring different styles of music - through a combination of learning songs, improvisation/creation and technique.
I work hard to help you achieve your goals and most importantly, get you playing with confidence!
