The Full Course

About Claire Galloway

I teach singers, actors, and voice actors of all ages, genres, and experience levels. My clients range from hobbyists to students to professionals because they are all on the same quest: to harness the power of their whole selves through their voices. 

I am an active freelance soprano and faculty member at Peabody Conservatory in Baltimore who has taught in institutions such as Music & Arts, The Music Workshop, Mike’s Music, and in my own private, Baltimore- and online-based studio. I encourage the physicalizing of sound and work with clients on understanding the body as instrument. I give clients exercises and tools to preserve the health of the voice and correct breath support so you can express yourself and communicate throughout your whole life.


Often mistaken for a native speaker, I've studied French for over 15 years, first in the U.S. and then in France. In my five years as Mademoiselle and then Italian Diction Maestra at Peabody, I have combined my skills as educator, voice teacher, and singer to hone new and easily applicable ways to learn the rules of French and Italian for singing. For me, languages have always been integral to the beautiful storytelling of vocal music, and I am continually learning and mastering new languages to access even more repertoire.

My clients always leave lessons and coachings with tools to tackle new repertoire in a multitude of language and knowledge of how to care for their bodies so that their voices will always express their unique sound and story.

Claire is an incredible teacher who makes singing the French language feel easy.

She incorporates great exercises, both written and sung/spoken, that allow for us to have a better understanding of how the vowels are shaped, as well as how to apply it by working on full pieces to incorporate into our repertoire. 

You can trust Claire to build an incredible foundation and confidence in your understanding and performing of any music in the French language.

As a former student of Ms. Galloway's French diction class, I am now more comfortable and confident singing in the beautiful, French language.

She helped me increase and expand my abilities to read and understand French, both with and without the International Phonetic Alphabet.

It is advantageous to work with Ms. Galloway, a fellow singer, as she understands and enforces that the language be produced in conjunction with free and open vocal technique.

I first met Claire 3 years ago when I was a Senior at the Peabody Conservatory of Music. She was my French diction professor, and an amazing one to say the least.

Through my course with Claire I developed a clear understanding of French phonetics and, with that, a new way to approach the beloved French repertoire.

Her attention to detail, organized way of teaching, and kind nature is what will keep me coming back.
