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.
