Bio and Professional Achievements:

At CCU, Claxton teaches private drum set and percussion lessons, percussion techniques, percussion literature, and directs the CCU Drum Line.

Faith and Learning:

Music is a spiritual study. Each time a musician performs, they have the opportunity to have a deep spiritual connection with their listeners, and with Christ.
At CCU, it is great to be able to discuss these things openly and freely, and learn and grow together.  That way we not only become better musicians, but we truly become better people.
