This site is designed to give information on my playing and teaching. Based in Bristol I have taught drums now for 18 years!!


I have been a drummer for over 25 years and my professional career saw me touring the U.K. and Europe extensively. I have a  vast experience of sound engineering and promoting as well as recording. I have been teaching drums for a great many years    and after teaching in many schools across the region I now specialise in teaching children but am more than happy to take on  any keen adults as well. I currently mix playing regularly with a variety of bands with teaching drums.


I have :

* An independant Enhanced Criminal Record Certificate issued by the DBS (Disclosure and Baring Service)

* Public Liability Insurance issued through The Musicians' Union

* Musician's Union membership

* Certificate of Education (teaching degree gained in 2005)


Please contact me if you are interested in lessons for your son or daughter or for yourself. You can bring them  along for a trial lesson first if you prefer. Click on the page 'Claire's Drum School' for information about my  lessons. Lessons take place in my well equipped music room at  my home in St.Annes.
