Clare Preece began her musical studies on the horn at the age of 13. She was a member of the National Children’s Orchestra, and later, became principal horn with the National Youth Orchestra of Great Britain. Clare studied horn and piano at the Royal Academy of Music in London. As a professional horn player, Clare has worked with all the major London symphony and chamber orchestras, as well as with the Bournemouth and City of Birmingham Symphony Orchestras, performing, touring and recording. She has appeared on many occasions with the BBC Symphony Orchestra at the BBC Proms in the Albert Hall, and performs regularly with the City of London Sinfonia at Opera Holland Park each summer. As well as music teaching, Clare also worked for a time as a teaching assistant in her children’s primary school, which she loved, nurturing her passion for education, especially in the very young. She is married with two teenage children and has experienced at first hand the hugely positive effect live music has on children, even from a very young age!

"It was fantastic to see and hear a range of real instruments being played and to move away from the same old tunes we hear everywhere.
Both my children were completely mesmerised."


Tunbridge Wells

"How bored I was with the plethora of baby groups which seemed to trudge endlessly through the obligatory nursery rhymes and actions!"



"My 16 month old son has been attending these well resourced and professionally run classes since he was 9 months old. I couldn't recommend it enough.
Give it a go!"


Tunbridge Wells

"Equally a physical class full of movement and a quiet class for developing your child's listening skills... a fun and educational atmosphere for young children."
