She is a versatile recitalist, chamber musician and soloist. Claudia Schaer earned a Doctorate of Musical Arts from Stony Brook University in 2011, studying with Phillip Setzer, Ani Kavafian, and Pamela Frank, and writing about Varèse, Boulez, and the intersection of philosophy and music, under the mentorship of Judith Lochhead and Lydia Goehr.
