Claire Greig born, raised and still resident in Derby had an interest and determination to learn and play the organ awakened when as a five year old on a Pontins Middleton towers holiday she enjoyed the National Organ Festival together with other children she received free lessons there. She returned home full of enthusiasm and enrolled in a music school. Music was a substantial element of her education and private organ lessons were arranged. Aged eleven Claire entered and passed an Associate Diploma (with Hons). Next in line was the Licentiate Diploma followed by the Fellowship Diploma which she passed with Honours at the age of sixteen. Additionally Claire obtained ABRSM Grade 5 Flute and Grade 8 Piano.
Her annual visits to the National Organ Festival continued and she received a first festival booking herself at the age of seventeen. Her studies continued with her obtaining a degree in Popular Music Production and Sports Studies and then an MSc in Exercise & Nutrition Science. Although now married ‘Claire Greig’ is retained as her stage name. Claire is now teaching music around Derbyshire, and she maintains a Wersi Support role.
Her concerts are performed on the amazing Wersi OAX-1 duo
