The Project

Welcome to the Clem Burke Drumming Project (CBDP).

The Clem Burke Drumming Project (CBDP) was founded in 2008 by Dr Clem Burke (drummer, Blondie), Professor Steve Draper (Hartpury University) and Professor Marcus Smith (University of Chichester).

What initially set out to examine the physiological demands of playing ‘live’ during one-off (i.e. Glastonbury) and multiple gigs (i.e. World Tour) has grown into exploring the physical, mental and health benefits of drumming.

The finding’s from our pioneering work, using the latest magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) technology, can be accessed via the RESEARCH tab.

Click the LATEST NEWS tab for up to date information on the latest range of activities undertaken by colleagues and associates of the CBDP.

Please get in touch via the CONTACT US tab if you would like more information about our work or desire to collaborate on future projects. There is a great opportunity to undertake new and exciting activities … we look forward to hearing from you.

Thank you for visiting the site. Enjoy.

Prof Marcus Smith, Dr Clem Burke and Prof Steve Draper. Founding members of the CBDP.
