The classical technique I teach incorporates consistent breath management and consistent, pure vowels. The combination and synchronization of these allow the singer to access all the resonance necessary for classical singing in a healthy, stress-free way. I also work with students on diction in the operatic languages (French, Italian, German and English) as well as help them understand stylistic differences across the history of classical music.
I teach classical/operatic singing to singers as young as 15, and you're never too old to start singing classically! Try something new with your voice, prepare your audition for that musical or for your college auditions. We will work together to create a free sound that is individual to you in a fun environment.
Can't wait to meet you!

I'm a professional singer and a passionate teacher of voice and beginning piano. I have been singing since I was five, and studying voice since age 14, going on to complete a Bachelor's and Master's Degree in Voice Performance.
The classical technique I teach gives my students the tools to sing in a variety of styles, whether opera, broadway, pop, or rock.
I also teach beginning piano for both children and adults, as well as ear training and musicianship.
Everyone can make music. Even if you think you can't carry a tune, come learn with me!
I maintain a private studio teaching out of my home and in studio spaces in Midtown Manhattan.
I teach voice and piano at one of the oldest music schools in the city.
Claire has been my piano teacher for the last 2 years. She's very positive and motivates me to practice. She comes up with ideas to make practicing fun (even Hanon exercises! :)
Claire is a my first vocal coach and the best ever! Her warm-up exercises helped me reach a higher volumes and a fuller sound. She laced her instructions with visual analogies which are good for an untrained singer like myself. Above all, she helped me regain confidence in my singing and instilled a great respect for throat as a delicate muscle.+ Read More
Claire has been my daughter's piano teacher for two years and she's excellent!
Her knowledge and patience with kids make the lessons interesting and fun. I can see improvements week after week, not only in music-playing but also in my daughter's confidence. Claire is instilling a passion for music that I hope my daughter will keep forever.
