Claire Andersen


Music Teacher, Head of Music Department




Bringing a musical touch to OWIS, Claire Andersen is passionate about the creative arts. She found her love for music at seven after picking up a violin for the first time. She spent 15 years of her professional career teaching ensemble groups and individual music lessons at schools in Melbourne. Claire earned her Bachelor of Primary Education at Deakin University.

Claire spent much of her classroom career teaching music to students in the beautiful Dandenong Ranges before moving to Singapore in 2017 with her husband. She believes music opens doors to creativity and helps students focus. She has recently begun her Orff-Schulwerk Accreditation.

When she’s not immersing her students in a classical piece, Claire enjoys spending time with her two children. She believes physical fitness is key to a strong mind and body and regularly practices Pilates at the gym.
