Welcome to my website!


Here you can find out more about my work as a specialist in historically informed performance practice on early flutes.

My musical interests range from Renaissance to Romantic repertoire in consort, ensemble and orchestral settings, performed on close copies of original instruments.

Please read on for more information about forthcoming concerts, alongside details of my teaching, examining and research activities.

Renaissance Flute Day (2.3.19)

What a day it was, it far outweighed my expectations,...Clare was an excellent tutor…Her informative but relaxed style was infectious, and I’m sure made for a brilliant day... (Heather Holt, MEMF)

Huge thanks to all who so enthusiastically participated in the Renaissance flute day and to Worcestershire Early Music for their support in co-hosting the event. For Facebook users, Heather's full review can be found here


Concert Review

Read the full review of Calliope at St Nicholas, Brighton, by Dr Simon Jenner (13.2.19)
