Claire Trevelyan was born to professional musician parents and began her musical journey at the age of two and a half years old with both Violin and Piano lessons. Music has been a huge part of her life at all stages, including the study of multiple instruments (Guitar and Harpsichord as well as Violin and Piano). She completed her bachelor of music (performance) at the Australian Institute of Music, and is currently undertaking a Masters of Performance degree.
She is a frequent performer as both a soloist in recital and private settings, and as an accompanist; and she recently made her public orchestral debut in Sydney performing a Mozart concerto with Sutherland Shire Symphony Orchestra. She also teaches music theory at AMPA. Claire enjoys teaching immensely and loves working with students of any age or level to foster a love of music and the ability to play, learn and enjoy music long after the lesson is over.
Although she has been predominantly classically trained, Claire is comfortable teaching a range of musical styles and has a special interest in aural training, arranging and improvisation.
