Your music moved me and touched me beyond words. It was like a soulful connection that radiated out of you and touched my soul in deep ways.
Clare’s voice reflects her name – a clear and pure sound that reminds us that heaven is right here with us, in midst of life. When she sings one is swept upwards and held aloft like a bird on an updraft.
Clare is a wonderful voice training coach. She is passionate in believing that with effort and breath training anyone can become a good speaker.
I met Clare at Grace North Church (Berkeley, CA) when I was Master of Ceremonies. I was quite nervous about my first big speaking engagement. Somehow I got through it. At the end of the evening Clare came over to me and said “you know, you could be a powerful presence…it is in you!” she didn’t say how or why but I was left with this feeling of Wow, somebody saw something in me that I would like to tap into. As my vision and my public appearances continued to grow Clare’s words kept coming back to me and I phoned her to ask her what she meant. She told me that she works with people using methods that prepare people to use their voice with confidence. She works to bring out that passion behind the words. She said she could feel my passion and knew that with some guidance I could become someone people wanted to listen to. Needless to say I worked with Clare and found that now I can stand up without notes and speak from my heart, and forget that once I was very anxious about this same thing. Thank you Clare so much. I will never forget you.
Clare is an inspired music teacher and has the ability to look deep and support on many levels. This was my first singing lesson, in preparation for a local choir audition. Having being told in the past that I had better stick to song writing, I felt a little embarrassed at being there at all. I left feeling a renewed sense of trust in myself, uplifted and confident that I had a voice I could develop and even share, as it is, without shame. The exercises were lighthearted and fun and gave me a clear sense of how I could open more fully to the joys of transmitting with this powerful instrument. I left feeling more alive and connected to my spirit and heart, which is what I essentially wish to share. I look forward to the next one! Love,
Dearest Clare, I can’t be with you tonight for singing. Am absolutely gutted and feel as though torn from my mother. Sandi and I sang The dark of the Moon song the next morning at 7am from the top of the Tor all the way down to near the white spring till we became hoarse and croaky of voice. Exhilarating! The energies were so strong. I love love love your workshops and am longing to return to take more. Enjoy tonight and I will miss you all, sing one for me!
