Claudia Tulip, a Music Together® Center Director since 1999, currently
directs Under One Common Sky featuring the Music Together,
KidStrums, Indigo Rhythm programs, small ensemble coaching and
private lessons in flute, guitar, improvisation, ear training and
songwriting. Classically and jazz trained, she has written music for dance
companies, documentaries and theatre. Claudia was a contributing
musician to Jerry Jacka's Emmy award winning documentary "Beyond
Tradition" and the NAMA award winning CD 'Colors of My Heart' by
Sharon Burch. Claudia's artistic life has always been a blend of
performance and innovative teaching. She had the great fortune of
participating in Master Classes with Marcel Moyse, considered to be one
of the greatest flute masters of the 20th century.
In addition to her B.A in music performance and study of the Dalcroze and Orff methods, Claudia
attended jazz band directors' summer intensives at Eastman School of Music and Toronto's York
University along with years of jazz study with "Coach" Barry Harris at the Jazz Cultural Theater in New
York City. Since 1988, Claudia has been the flutist of the William Eaton Ensemble, a world fusion quintet,
having released five albums for Canyon Records. 'Where Rivers Meet' earned a Billboard Critic's Choice
and 'Sparks and Embers' garnered top ten play list in the World Music catagory in Japan and Canada in
During Claudia's time of tenure at New York's famed Saint Ann's School, she conducted the Middle
School Chorus, Chamber Ensemble, Flute Ensemble and Jazz Ensemble while teaching Orff-inspired
classes in Improvisation-Composition. She was one of 10 Music Faculty members at Saint Ann's. During
the 2014 - 2015 school year, she taught innovative music expression to Grades 4-8 at Desert Star
Community School. The Indigo Rhythm and KidStrums programs grew out of Tulip's desire to share the
organic nature of exploring an instrument and using it as a creative vehicle for improvisation,
composition, ensemble work and presence. Classes, lessons and workshops embrace the understanding
that the muse within each of us need only be recognized and cultivated to express works of great beauty
in resonant concert with others, Under One Common Sky*. Tulip is known for diving deep into the heart
of music and creativity with people of all ages and many cultures.
*Our studio name, Under One Common Sky was inspired by a song composed by William Eaton entitled
ONE PEOPLE. In the song, William recognizes and celebrates the oneness of us all. At Under One
Common Sky, you are invited to express this connection through your unique expression of creativity
and encouraged to take it wherever you may go.
