Claudia, the Passionate Pianist, was born in Argentina, where she has lived until 2002, when she married her American husband, Dr. S. Wilson MD, who brought her to live in the U.S.A. (now she is a proud American citizen), first in the Tampa Bay area (Florida), and since 2007 in the Pittsburgh area (Pennsylvania)


Claudia started studying in the Conservatory at the age of 6 years old, and graduated with the highest honors and was awarded at the age of 13 years old with the title of Superior Professor of Piano. She performed for the first time at 7 years old at a Concert for advanced students in her native city in Argentina.

During her childhood she performed numerous times in presentations sponsored by the Conservatory, as well as in the celebrations of her Primary and High School, where she was the one who was called to play the patriotic songs needed for special occasions.


Although she was classically taught and trained, she was nourished with the passion that only the Argentinian Tango can transmit, and extended such a passion to perform to her whole repertoire, which covers almost all the musical genres.


She graduated as a Certified Public Accountant, worked as bank manager and as a University Professor of Economic Sciences. While this was her "day job", she always had her "Professional Hobby" of playing the piano in private parties, corporate events and friend's celebrations. Her close relations with the business world opened her to opportunities to meet people who hired her as a pianist for their events.

         When she came to live in the USA, she was still a Professor in Economic Sciences, but over the time she exchanged definitively her former "hobby" of a solo pianist to be her career, making Economics her hobby during her spare time. Nowadays she is a full time solo Piano performer. She has played in the finest venues in Pittsburgh area, as well as in OH, WV, MD, VA, DC and NY, overseas and on Live TV in the USA. She has been the exclusive Pittsburgh International Airport pianist for five years (2007 - 2013), and has performed regularly for lunch time at the Atrium of the One Oxford Centre in downtown Pittsburgh from 2010 to 2016.

          Her international repertory of about 2,700+ songs covers practically all the musical genres: Jazz, Pop, Classical, American Standards, New Age, Neo-Classical, Soundtracks (Hollywood and Broadway), music of the decades, Christmas and Holiday, Wedding, Country, Italian, French, Spanish, Romantic Latin, Irish, Patriotic, Traditional tunes,  and of course, Tango and Argentinian Folklore. She also has special thematic programs such as tributes to Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Beatles and Secret Garden, Love songs, Disney Songs, among others (Yanni, Kenny G, Clayderman, Elton John, Bees Gees, Billy Joel, Scot Joplin, Cole Porter, Queen, Vangelis).

          Claudia is a “paperless” musician, one of the very few performers in the world who uses the newest technology: she carries her entire library in a tablet PC, and with just a finger touch she is able to play any spontaneous request. Also she turns pages wirelessly with her foot with a special device. She does not use pre-recorded or backing tracks (even if she plays at a digital keyboard). All what you hear is played and created by her at the moment.

          She customizes every single performance, and the customers have the priority and joy to select each song for the program.  She takes care of inquiries and customers directly, without agents.

         Claudia accepts private performances locally, nationwide and overseas, for all type of events.
