From busking on the streets of her native Germany to performing throughout the Mid-Atlantic in the US, Claudia SanSoucie has always loved music and performance. Frequent returns to Europe eventually lead her in 2007 to the Complete Vocal Technique (CVT) teaching of Cathrine Sadolin, the founder of the Complete Vocal Institute in Denmark, which had been growing in reputation as the leading vocal school in Europe.

After several years of CVT study, Claudia SanSoucie became an authorized CVT teacher with the distinction of being the first authorized CVT teacher in the United States.

Even though CVT is still relatively unknown in the States, interest in CVT is growing due to its popularity in Europe as a comprehensive, innovative, and effective technique.

Claudia SanSoucie is excited to apply and share this teaching method with her students. Her approach is efficient, based on years of research and science, non-judgmental and inclusive of all vocal styles to help singers reach their technical and artistic goals.

Claudia is an award-winning singer-songwriter and an active performer as part of the contemporary folk duo Beggar’s Ride. The Frederick News Post calls Beggar’s Ride “among some of the best female-led vocally driven folk groups around.”
