Vocal Coach

Having been forced to learn, at the beginning of my career, how to manage terrible stress on my own, I would have really benefit from a guide like this one!
-Yannick Nézet-Séguin: Conductor (in the preface of Claude’s book : Reaching you inner zone of excellence)

His experience and knowledge of repertoire make him an essential guide to the progress and development of any lyric artist. A communicator endowed with a contagious energy, he animates each of his classes with masterfully and brilliance.
-Michel Beaulac: Artistic Director, Montreal Opera

 

Pianist and renowned vocal coach, Claude has acquired over the years an unparalleled experience. He knows how to integrate not only the musical elements, lyrical diction and interpretation, but also the performance approach that allows the singer to always give their best and to take each situation as an opportunity to develop. 
-Chantal Lambert : Director, Atelier lyrique, Montreal Opera

Claude’s teaching was a revelation for me. If the word  »performance » can put some people off and seem to keep us away from the real creative impulses, Claude’s classes give a taste for excellence and use « individuality » as a stepping stone towards greater freedom of expression. His chats are an essential balm to the traditional methods of teaching music. His approach is based on pleasure, and is very inspiring and effective.
-Isabeau Proulx-Lemire, Actor, Singer and Stage Director

Working with Claude means discovering our entire range of colors as an artist. Music becomes a door that opens on expression and emotion and is not boxed in or self-contained.
Myriam Leblanc, soprano

I recommend Claude to anyone with performance anxiety needing quick and effective solutions. It’s not therapy, but it is a practical aid, providing new tools to move forward and to feel more free during performance.
Caroline Gélinas, mezzo-soprano
