Christine’s award-winning tutor books for Boosey & Hawkes- Learn As You Play Drums and Learn As You Play Tuned Percussion & Timpani- continue to attract praise from the percussion world and have been described by Evelyn Glennie as ‘a wonderful contribution to percussion education’. Her latest book Drum Styles Made Easy is a unique and comprehensive guide for kit drummers.
Christine is the sole percussion adjudicator for the British and International Federation of Festivals for Music, Dance and Speech.
