Following her appearance on the National Public Radio music show "From the Top,” she was selected from 3700 applicants for a full-ride Presidential Scholarship to Berklee College of Music in Boston, where she graduated with a degree in contemporary composition and piano/voice performance.
 
As a touring/session keyboardist, Neara has performed with Hollywood Records artist Bridgit Mendler, violinist Lili Haydn, American Idol finalist Haley Reinhart, and Sony artist BC Jean.
