Singing and Musical Theatre
Claire trained as an opera singer at the Guildhall School of Music. She went on to work for various national opera companies before finding herself in musical theatre! Claire was part of the Olivier Award winning ensemble in "Jerry Springer: The Opera" at the National Theatre before taking the roles of Zandra/Irene/Mary when it transferred to the Cambridge Theatre. The production was consequently shown on BBC2. Following her success in this musical she was cast in many other West End musicals and tours around the UK including Beauty and the Beast, The Witches of Eastwick and The Phantom of the Opera to name a few.
Claire started teaching in 2010 and has built up an excellent reputation in the Croydon area. She has many students who have enjoyed exam success or have gone on to work in musical theatre and opera.
Claire has not yet finished with her performing career but has a new found passion for helping others realise their potential and improve their voices and performance skills.
