I am a songwriter and guitar player, performing in two bands around Boston. I play both acoustic and electric guitar, mostly in pop/rock/blues styles.

A graduate of Berklee College of Music, I have a good foundation of music theory, and try to incorporate this knowledge together with instrumental studies. I am a current Guitar Instructor at a local music school.

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!
