Clodagh also was scouted for and competed in The Voice UK at the age of 17. Clodagh frequently performs at weddings and in many other venues and events across NI as a professional singer.
Clodagh has been developing her talents for song writing from her early teens and as a result, she has recently jumped head-first into her journey as an original artist, recording and releasing music and performing all over the country with her 4-piece live band. She has gained a substantial amount of Radio play, been featured in various blogs and newspapers and her debut single has even made it to the NI Music Prize Eligible List for 2022 (Fingers crossed it gets shortlisted!!).
Over the last 5 years, Clodagh has been developing high quality one-to-one lessons with students from ages 4 right up to adult.

Clodagh is looking forward to beginning her time with the School of Music. She is most looking forward to being a part of her student’s development as performers, sharing her knowledge in the hopes that it inspires a new generation of performers, and tapping into the creativity that awaits in every budding musician’s mind!
