Teaching since:

Hello, my name is Claire :) I am French and arrived in the US in August 2010 to study music. In August, I will be starting my Doctorate in Music on a full scholarship at the University of Miami after earning a Master in Music Performance from California State University Fullerton on a full scholarship as well. I am currently playing in a professional clarinet quartet and I am studying with the principal clarinetist of the LA Phil until I go to Miami. My ultimate goal is to play clarinet and teach music at the University level.

I have the experience of teaching private clarinet lessons in France since 2006 and in America since 2010 and am seeking clarinet students of every level and age. I can help you prepare for high school band/university admission auditions or any other type of performances.

I have also studied piano for a few years and have the experience of teaching private piano lessons in France and America.

Finally as I am from France, I was a French tutor at my University for 6 years and can help you learn French, get ready for exams and midterms or just do conversation if you are more advanced.

Claire is fantastic! She's great at assessing what you need and lesson planning on the spot. She breaks down the grammar in a way that is easy to understand. Can't wait to continue!

This was the best decision I have made for my music. Being able to take part in lessons about my specific instrument on an individual basis allowed for better performance in class and on auditions. The results are undeniable.

Taking French lessons with Claire has been an amazing experience so far ! First Claire is from France (and has the accent !) and she makes French easy and accessible to anyone. She has been so great helping me with pronunciation too. I can't wait for my next lesson ! Merci Claire !

Claire is aweseom! She makes sure you are learning at a pace and level that suits you the best, and more importantly, she doesn't just teach you how to play the instrument but instead how to interpret the music. She ensures that you start building good musical habits even as a beginner, and this has not only helped me with playing the instrument, but also gave me a new perspective of appreciating and enjoying music played by other people.
Overall an amazing teacher, 10/10 would buy again :D!
