Clara teaches private lessons and small ensembles both in her home studio and in other venues. Her teaching philosophy is centered around empowering people of all ages and abilities to be able to play the music that they dream of playing. She teaches basic skills on each instrument (technique, music reading etc.) while leaving space for students to continually define what they wish their musical journey to be.
Though all private music lessons involve some form of adaptation to be tailored to the individual student, “Adaptive music lessons” are geared toward helping people with unique challenges or disabilities learn to play an instrument in a unique way. This could involve changes in positioning, presentation, or simply a change of pace. Clara’s extensive knowledge of disability and adaptation from the field of occupational therapy makes her uniquely suited to offer adaptive music lessons.
Clara has chosen to be a music teacher and brings great passion, enthusiasm, and love to her job.
