Clare’s globe-spanning journey takes her from neighborhood USO dances and New York’s Stage Door Canteen to entertaining the troops with a traveling production of a Broadway show while learning lessons of friendship, love, and loss that no history book could ever teach.

As a jazz vocalist and music educator I aim to share my love of the Great American Songbook and jazz standards with others. I am available for performances and private lessons for all ages. I am currently equipped for virtual lessons and performances, and as additional guidance is released for these activities I anticipate resuming them safely in-person.
As a vocal teacher, I work to make each singer the best they can be with their own unique voice. I focus on healthy and natural vocal technique and the expression and meaning behind songs. I have successfully coached students preparing for NYSSMA, helped students audition for musical theatre productions, and improve their music theory and sight reading knowledge. Be the best singer you can be!
