Claire Beard Music

Stunning flute music in the mountains of Telluride

British born flute player and graduate of The Royal Academy of Music I specialize in providing beautiful live music for wedding ceremonies in the gorgeous mountains of Telluride and the surrounding area. With over a decade of experience in weddings of all shapes and sizes I love to help remove any stress from planning the music and make it something personal and incredibly special. If you want to keep the music going a little longer I also offer background music for cocktail hour and during dinner. I have an extensive repertoire of classical, jazz and pop music and can arrange any other songs that are special to you as a couple. The flute is a wonderfully versatile instrument that requires no amplification and adds that extra special something to your celebrations. No request is too big or small, do get in touch with your ideas!

Love Notes

“Claire is kind, calm, innately elegant, and full of positive energy- a wonderful addition to any wedding party before you even get to her flute playing which is simply world class. Having her with us on our special day lifted the occasion and leant a classical, timeless glamour. Many of our guests complimented me for having found her. The tunes she helped me select for the occasion were completely appropriate – calming and reflective but also playful and full of joy. Her graceful flute playing really helped set the tone for a beautiful afternoon and I cannot thank Claire enough for bringing her extraordinary talent and wonderful personality to my wedding.”

– Kate + Alex

“Claire Beard is an extraordinary flutist.  Having a flutist like Claire play before and during our wedding ceremony was absolutely lovely. Looking back we wouldn’t have wanted any other kind of music or artist to play during our wedding ceremony.  Claire’s elegant, soft, beautiful music made walking down the isle with my dad an even more magical and unforgettable experience. She also took the time to meet with me prior to the wedding day to help me pick out just the right songs and sound I was looking for on our special day.  We highly recommend Claire, she is professional, talented and plays beautifully. Having her play is like icing on the cake for any special occasion!”

– Kara + Andy

“We LOVED Claire! Her passion, expertise and warm personality made choosing the music an easy and enjoyable part of our wedding planning and she even arranged our favorite song for walking down the aisle. Her playing on the day was so beautiful and had most of the wedding party in tears! We now have a framed copy of the music she arranged for us on the wall and it’s one of our most treasured reminders from our wedding day. I can’t recommend Claire enough to all the potential brides out there.”

– Melanie + Paul

Fun facts

What do you consider your style to be?

Classically trained but with extensive repertoire that includes pop, jazz, easy listening, traditional music and show tunes too. I love to put a personal spin on a piece of music that makes it special to the couple.

How did you get started in the wedding industry?

After graduating from The Royal Academy of Music I set up a Woodwind Trio with two friends in London and we were asked to play at The National Wedding Show. Things snowballed from there and we performed weddings all over the country and even one for a Royal Family in the Paris Opera House. I moved to Telluride with my husband in 2016 and the beautiful setting inspired me to continue playing for weddings. Each one is so unique and such a happy occasion that I don’t think you can find a more joyful job!

Do you travel for clients? If so, where?

I’m based in Telluride but will happily travel around Colorado. I’ve done weddings all over the world and love to travel, so I'm always up for experiencing new places!

What is your favorite part about a wedding?

I absolutely love the moment that the music for walking down the aisle starts and the Groom sees the Bride for the first time. The look of happiness and pure elation is infectious and so moving!
