About

My name is Cláudia Franco

I am a Portuguese jazz singer, composer, and voice teacher.

I am deeply passionate about vocal technique, teaching vocal technique for various styles, and vocal jazz.

 

My classes are relaxed and comprehensive. Singing is liberating but also very vulnerable, which is why I highly value kindness, exploring new concepts and honesty.
