Welcome to the Official Homepage of Charlie Draper, Classically-trained Thereminist, Composer and Theremin Tutor
Charlie has a growing reputation as one of Britain’s few theremin virtuosos, performing an eclectic mix of classical, popular and atmospheric music in concert across Europe. Having discovered the theremin at an early age, Charlie now brings this uniquely fascinating instrument to a wider audience, giving regular public performances in concert, at private functions and social gatherings.
With a repertoire ranging from Bach to Bartok, and inspirations spanning the globe, Charlie turned himself to the theremin at the age of just fifteen. Since then he has devoted himself to the instrument, forging his own technique and exploring the instrument’s sonic possibilities.
