Claire maitrise son art, elle est patiente envers ses élèves et a cette capacité incroyable de toucher les étoiles. Nous, on est fan !
Claire has transformed a timid child into a competent drummer, proud to demonstrate his skills. It must be due to her ability to connect with her students, build confidence in them, and her virtuoso skills. The students are given the opportunity to play in concert venues, and really grow as musicians. Her school and approach come highly recommended
The dreamed little percussion school! For our little beginner, the method is really suitable, stress free but pushing, and always with the teacher's patience (Fred in our case, really great). Clear and efficient communication and organization, thanks to Claire and her big smile!
For nearly 5 our son has been a student in Claire's school for years and after each class he always comes back with a smile ! We consider this school a real chance thanks to an exceptional teacher and a great diversity of instruments !
Claire gave birth in our son to a real passion for percussion.
She is always smiling, listening, pedagogue, very organized and always motivated to launch into great projects with her students !
We recommend to 100 % !
