Claire Greenway & Brendan Matthew

Claire Greenway 

Claire Greenway is one of our long standing singing tutors. Claire trained as a singer, both as a classical singer and in musical theatre, at the Royal Academy of Music and Chethams School of Music.

Her classes are half technique, based on the Estill model, and half repertoire. Music choices are wide ranging, touching in Musical Theatre, Jazz, Pop and Rock etc, and can be highly influenced by the tastes of the group. As a working actress, she also works on performance skills and acting through song. Claire’s upbeat style places equal emphasis on the enjoyment of singing as well as technical pursuits, so she is suited to those who like a giggle with their learning.
