Caroline is the second youngest and the second shortest of the Corrs. Her main instrument in the band is the drum kit and the bodhran, but she also occasionally plays the piano and sings backing vocals.
Like her brother and sisters, Caroline was taught the piano by her father Gerry from a very early age. She turned out to be a natural, mastering the instrument very fast and eventually becoming good enough to gain qualifications. The bodhran was another instrument that Caroline mastered from an early age. She incredibly learned this instrument solely from watching videos of traditional Irish musicians playing it. It wasn't until Caroline was 18, when the Corrs were without a drummer, that she started to learn the drums. An old boyfriend had a drum kit, and he showed her some basic beats. With the help of "teach yourself CD's," Caroline was able to learn simple drum loops and rolls. Armed with this small amount of knowledge, she then proceeded to become the drummer in the band, and had all her training playing live. Caroline laughs, "It was a nightmare. I had only been playing for a short time, and there I was being chucked in at the deep end. Luckily, people never noticed all the mistakes I used to make, or if they did, they were too polite to tell me." While learning the drums Caroline, had the continuous problem of sore and blistered hands, but she overcome this by using a special brand of Equestrian gloves. Nowadays, Caroline has decided that golfing gloves offer her even more control and they're now her number one choice. This type of glove enables Caroline to get the grip and comfort required to play the drums continuously for over 90 minutes at a time in concert.
