We feel so lucky to have found you in lockdown. 
BTW I've been meaning to tell you that I mostly try to give ( my daughter) privacy when she's having zoom sessions at home... but on the occasions when I have overheard her lessons with you, they've been super-fantabulous!  Your teaching is amazing!!

Claire is one of the best teachers I’ve ever been lucky enough to work with. Incredibly talented as a performer herself and with all of her teaching experience she’s simply the perfect tutor to bring out the best in anyone who wants to succeed creatively, in any of the performance disciplines.


Summer ′Smile!′ 2018

Smile was an enjoyable and well run theatre project, ending in a well staged and enthusiastic performance that was fun to watch. All the children seemed very happy to be on stage and they had clearly gained a lot of confidence to to work as a group. Thank you!

Thank you so much for making this morning’s event such a fantastic success. The event went perfectly and the feedback was excellent. Your involvement in this morning’s event was much appreciated…. Thanks to you , the children, audience and VIPs had a wonderful time.

Julia Wilson

Thanks . My youngsters enjoyed it SO much and it meant a lot to them all. For some of them in particular …. it will have boosted their self-esteem hugely. For me, seeing their faces today on the stage was just great, and to watch you working with them as been a privilege. Thank you Claire!

Janet Scott

Depute Head, Teacher Prestonpans Primary

You were brilliant… hopefully there will be further opportunities for more things like this.

Rebecca M

Performer, Olympic Choir

When I first met our workshop leader, I thought she was really nice. She was a good teacher and she taught us well. I thought the rehearsals were going to be difficult, having to learn different parts. I was absent on the day of the first rehearsal so I thought “Oh no! It will be really hard to catch up!”, but I was wrong, it wasn’t hard at all….the event was really good… and I’d love to do it again…

Jessica E

Performer, Olympic Choir

The Olympic Torch Relay was really fun, and I would love to do it again but I obviously can’t! I signed up for it because I wanted to get better at performing. Claire was an amazing coach and the workshops were sooooooo much fun!

Melanie B

Performer, Olympic Choir

The practice sessions were fun as Claire, who taught us everything, was really upbeat, enthusiastic and energetic… I’ll remember it forever.

Vivienne Wallace

Ageing Well Group, Midlothian Council

The ladies and I really enjoyed the whole event, especially working with Claire, she was such an enthusiastic and patient teacher. The show was brilliant…
