Trainer Information

Clara Hardie

**Clara’s teaching goal is to nurture beautiful humanity and beautiful talent. She founded & directs Detroit Youth Volume. Half of the students’ music education is supported by community-based fundraising. In addition to classical training, DYV brings in local & visiting artists for special Detroit-centric workshops. These collaborations develop students’ positive cultural identities. Clara is also coach of "Growing Equitable Music Studios", a virtual Course of Action for music teachers who believe every child can change the world.

In July 2022, Clara moved to Marquette, MI, where she runs a small studio. She teaches the majority of her students virtually on Zoom since they live in Detroit. A larger organization called Michigan Youth Volume is taking shape! It includes creative collaboration between youth and adult musicians from Detroit and Marquette, the two largest cities in the lower and upper peninsulas of Michigan.
