Clare's been teaching me over the past year as I wanted to improve both my singing technique and performance. She has introduced me to new songs to suit and stretch my voice, yet has also given me the opportunity to select my own songs I have always wanted to perform, particularly those from the West End. As a result I have been able to explore many different genres of music each requiring a new skill set. I can highly recommend her.
Clare is enthusiastic, attentive and obviously brilliant with children. Her energy radiates into every class and my daughter absolutely loves her. She has been clever in helping my daughter choose pieces that are suitable for her personality and acting skills, which I believe helped her in achieving her recent distinction in her LAMDA Acting exam and gain a scholarship at her senior school. She has excellent communication skills and is a pleasure to have around.
