About Me

I am Claude Masear. I am a seasoned music teacher, and teacher of various instruments with 30 years of experience in New York State schools. I have relocated to the Knoxville TN area and I am willing to give lessons at my home studio, at the students' home or on line. I received a Doctorate of Education degree in Music Education from Teachers College, Columbia University in New York City. During my bachelors and masters level schooling I was a frequent performer in the Itzach Perlman Master classes and I studied with the prominent violin and viola professor Masao Kawasaki. I am looking forward to teaching students in eastern Tennessee---an area known for its rich musical heritage.
