She sang soprano with the University Singers under the direction of Dr. Brady Knapp at the University of St. Thomas for six years and has also acted in pop shows and musical theater workshops. During her undergraduate, Claire took time to study vocal pedagogy, music theory, and music history. She has over eight years of experience teaching beginner to intermediate-level piano students. Since 2020, she has been teaching voice lessons to all ages and enjoys helping students apply classical techniques to a variety of musical styles.
In Spring 2021 Claire won fourth place for her category in the Greater Houston NATS (National Association of Teachers of Singing) competition.
