Cédric Hilaire started playing drums and giving his first concerts aged 17. He performed around Europe with different bands such as Zetlaskars, EARL, Fouad Nohra, Kulbuto, Konami Code, Bonobo Circus, Ape’s O Clock, Tomawok... and gave about 900 concerts.

Moreover, the drummer has developed a passion for teaching.

He joined the teaching staff of Yamaha (Yamaha Popular Music School near Rennes - France) when he was 23 and he conducted classes for small groups and private lessons for nearly 10 years.

In 2014, Cédric created his own online drum school, "D-Click Online", to share his knowledge and his conception of teaching. So far he has provided advice to more than 300 students throughout the world.

In 2019 he built his studio, the "Studio DCO" to host drummers during one-day or more workshop sessions, a way of improving as efficiently as possible in a comfy and nice place.

From this studio he broadcasts videos on his YouTube channel (25 000 subscribers) as well as writing his monthly column targeting the interests of drummers "Les cours de Cédric Hilaire" in "Batterie magazine".
