Hello, my name is Claire, I'm a piano teacher in the Sarasota-Bradenton Area. I have a Bachelor's degree in piano performance from Georgia State University , and is well-trained in the Classical style.
I have more than 8 years of experience teaching piano lessons to students of all ages and levels, and have taught a number of advanced students.
During my undergraduate years at Georgia State University, I have participated in multiple state-level auditions; In 2008 I was selected to play at the Savannah Convention Center in Savannah, Georgia as a GMEA (Georgia Music Educators Association) Conference recitalist. In 2011 I was also a finalist in the GMTA audition. (Georgia music teachers association).
During a typical piano lesson, I teach
-basic music theory knowledge
-correct hand positions and posture
-Ear training (learning how to hear notes by ear)
· Piano · In home Claire was very nice..My daughter liked her and is looking forward to learn more. I thought Claire was very encouraging too, which really increases the childs moral. Thanks Claire!!
· Piano · In home The first lesson went great! I was a little worried because of my daughter's short attention span, but she really liked Claire and I thought Claire was very patient and did an exceptional job of explaining things to my 7 year old daughter. My little girl is so excited and is working hard. She can't wait for her next lesson.
· Piano · In home I got these lessons for my mom for Christmas. She just had her fist lesson and said it was wonderful. Claire connected with my mom and got her started on a journey of musical growth. Good job Claire!
