CHILDREN'S CONCERTS and COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT
Community engagement forms an increasingly important part of Clare’s work. In 2017, she set up a partnership with Gloucestershire Music to give recitals in local schools and, since then, has performed to over 3,600 schoolchildren. She frequently gives children’s concerts and masterclasses at festivals across the UK and France.

"I just wanted to say thank you for the amazing piano recital that you organised. Our children absolutely loved it and we had messages from parents that very evening to say how what a huge impact it had made! Clare Hammond is such a gifted performer and she had the children rapt with interest as she talked about the pieces - as well as during her beautiful playing."
"She turned our school piano into a thing of magic and many of the children have said that they wish to write about her playing and add it to our ‘awe and wonder’ board. Thank you again for providing this high quality musical experience to our tiny school and inspiring our pupils."
"Clare was amazing – we were all blown away by her skill and fantastic playing. She also had such a wonderfully calm yet engaging manner with the children – she was truly inspirational."
