Beginning to learn the violin at 7 years old, Klara has been involved with music from an early age. Klara has studied up to grade 7/8 in The Suzuki Method for Violin, and partially AMEB for Violin, she has also studied music theory at tertiary level, and began her teaching career in 2008. Also in 2008, Klara joined the Wollongong Youth Orchestra and toured Perth, France and Germany performing at central Paris, The Madeleine Church, as well as The Lorraine Theatre in Nancy, France.
At the Wollongong Conservatorium of Music Klara studied violin with Scott Taggart and composition/theory/piano with John Spence. During this time she began composing and singing her own songs and moved to Melbourne in 2012 to pursue a Bachelor of Music, majoring in contemporary vocals. She has worked with singing teachers Karen Cummings, Diana Clark and Nilusha Dassenaike.
Klara has also been a part of traditional Croatian singing and dancing her whole life. She was the director and conductor of the Croatian Youth Choir in Wollongong from 2007-2009, and has assisted the local Melbourne group with traditional Croatian choral, dancing, theory and instrumental lessons, as well as transcribing and arranging music for the group since 2013. Klara has been extensively involved in various world music programs having participated in Balkan choir, South Indian rhythm and voice, Balinese Gamelan, TaKeTiNa rhythm and West-African Bata drumming.
Klara's debut album was released November 2016, and her Ep in December 2018. She has since began exploring the world of electronic music and has started her journey of expression through various digital music genres, concepts and sound.

For vocal lessons you will gain increased breath control and capacity, develop your vocal range, improve your voice quality and control, strengthen pitching abilities, learn how to care for your voice, receive assigned vocal exercises, and find your own unique voice.
Piano and violin lessons lean towards traditional classical methodology, and specialise in The Suzuki Method.
Vocal lessons are more contemporary based.

You will require your own instrument and books, and for online lessons an electronic device with webcam, a free Skype account, and reliable internet access.

Here is what Klara's students are saying about their lessons...
❝ Klara is a wonderful piano teacher and has been teaching both my sons Alex and Marco for the past 3 years. They have both made huge progress and developed a great rapport with Klara. She makes the lessons fun and is very patient. They look forward to it each and every week. As a parent I'm grateful that Klara has managed to engage my sons in an activity they thoroughly enjoy. ❞
- Stojan Veselinovski
❝ Klara's classes are extremely easy to follow, and she does a wonderful job in directing me diligently during the online sessions! She is very good with giving professional instruction on techniques and her notes are always useful for practicing at home. She is incredibly patient and I highly recommend her lessons to anyone who would like to start learning violin from scratch like me! Thank you so much Klara. ❞
- Krithika B.
❝ I started working with Klara in 2020 because I wanted to be better at something I love doing. I was too shy to look at in person lessons because the thought of going was just TOO DAUNTING AND EMBARRASSING! I sent Klara an email and with her kind encouragement I took the step to book an online session.
What makes these lessons special is the relationship you build with Klara on your mutual love for music. She is super kind and encouraging, which makes lessons fun and something I look forward to every week. Klara meets you on your level of knowledge and I appreciate the effort she puts into explaining techniques.
In under a year I already feel more confident in my voice and I get so excited thinking about how many more songs I'll be able to perform to the many cars around me on my drives. No question is too bizarre and no mistake is embarrassing with her, so if you're thinking of doing something for yourself - GO FOR IT!! I'm rooting for you too! ❞
- Michelle Chew
❝ Online piano lessons with Klara are a great way to continue my learning without leaving my house. With a busy schedule, knowing that I can come home and go straight to my own piano to see Klara saves a lot of angst and rushing around. Taking the travel time out of getting to a lesson has made things a lot easier for me.
The lessons run really smoothly and are helpful to ensure I'm on the right track, I can ask questions and keep moving forward.I highly recommend working with Klara, and am grateful that working with her online makes life a lot easier for me and allows me to learn and improve! ❞
- Khloe Meacock
❝ Klara took us both on to learn violin together. Not only was she up to the challenge of taking on two new students at the same time but she made it work seamlessly. She is a patient, adaptable, thorough and excellent teacher. We could learn at our own pace and we always left our lesson feeling more accomplished! Highly recommend Klara for beginners to the more experienced. ❞
- Elaine & Jim
❝ Klara is a patient, proficient, and professional teacher, who consistently finds new and interesting ways of presenting information in a way that helps me grasp techniques and understand how I can improve. I highly recommend Klara as a music teacher, and also recommend having an online trial session, you won't be disappointed. 5 stars! ❞
- Sharon Fox
❝ On recently resuming my piano playing after an absence of 35 years, I decided that if I wanted to progress, I should find myself a teacher who could provide inspiration, enthusiastic encouragement, guidance, and a touch of discipline. Klara has exceeded my expectations and I am now confidently progressing towards my goals of competent piano skills and musical interpretation ❞
- Chris Pound
❝ I'm so glad that I found a teacher who my daughter could really connect with. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and actually even asked for them to be longer! I love the progress my daughter has made, as I see her increasing confidence with both singing and playing violin. Klara teaches with just the right mix of fun and attention to correct technique and style using music that my daughter enjoys. I would highly recommend Klara's lessons to anyone. ❞

❝ No question Klara is a great teacher, but what really stands out to me is how supportive she is. I was very nervous about starting singing lessons at first, but I've never felt anything other than comfortable with her. I've not only become a better singer, but also a more confident one, and that's all because of how encouraging Klara is. ❞
- Gary Dickson
❝ Klara is an inspiring young woman who has that wonderful ability to communicate with, and to teach people, across several generations from 8-10 year olds, the over 60's and those in between. I recommend Klara to anyone considering taking piano lessons. She is committed, encouraging & gives the right amount of challenge so one achieves progress without becoming discouraged. ❞
- Helen Gargan
❝ As an older student who had never had lessons, I was very nervous about having singing lessons, thinking that if I hadn't learned to sing by now I'd probably never learn. Klara has been very non-judgemental, supportive and encouraging, but at the same time has challenged me to work harder and improve. The lessons are one of the highlights of my week. Klara has taught me an extraordinary number of exercises and techniques, and every week there is something new. I have already gained confidence and control, and extended my singing range, something that my friends and bandmates have all commented upon. ❞
- Damian O'Keefe
❝ As an adult student who is brand new to the violin (and to any musical instrument for that matter), I have very much appreciated Klara's teaching style: patient yet persistent; engaging, encouraging and challenging; structured yet tailored to my learning style and pace; and - on top of it all - she makes it fun. ❞
- Khanh Ha
❝ My 12 year-old daughter has been having lessons with Klara has made great progress. She is motivated by Klara's lovely, supportive personality and Klara's approach is spot on - she's serious about the music but is encouraging, positive and a real friend to her pupils. We feel really lucky to have found Klara. ❞
- Dianna McDonald
❝ Klara's teaching style is insightful and uniquely speaks to you in a simple and effective way. She has helped me as an aspiring artist: teaching me the confidence from within. ❞
