Hailing from county Carlow, Clara founded Mini Musicians Ireland. Clara studied music and early childhood education before completing a masters degree in music therapy. Clara has a wealth of experience as a performer, facilitator and teacher. She has facilitated many parent-child music classes including the Arioso project in collaboration with the Association of Irish Choirs. Clara is also the founder of Harmony Music Therapy where she works with children and adults with special needs.
All our classes are based on research of child development and music. Classes are designed to strengthen the bond between parents and their children, and to develop children's cognitive, social, physical and communication skills.
