After completing her GMus at RNCM, Clare went on to do a Masters by Research at Keele University.  It was there that she discovered an interest in psychology.  Whilst still researching for her MA, Clare started tutoring at Keele and later at Salford University.  


Clare devised and has run the Master's course 'Psychology of Performance' at Salford for over 20 years.  Her book 'The Alchemy of Performance Anxiety' is the core text and is available to buy.

Clare is an expert in classical and operatic technique and has a keen interest in helping those suffering from anxiety and/or stage-fright.

I have been having lessons with Clare for 32 years.  She started teaching me when I was 17 and she was incredibly nurturing and careful in her handling of a young voice.  She helped me choose repertoire and not only taught me how to sing safely and how to present myself in concert, but helped develop my passion for early and classical singing.  

She was with me all the way through Operatunity, (a competition run by Channel 4 and English National Opera) helping me choose repertoire.  She continued to support me after I won the competition and made my debut at the London Colosseum. 

Claire has been a constant source of support and inspiration, and so much more than a teacher.
