Drumming Workshop with Jeff Rich

On Tuesday 18th April, Miss Trivedi organised a visited from Jeff Rich - the drummer of legendary rock group Status Quo.


He came in to hold a special drumming workshop for all the children in Years 1 to 6. He talked a little about his career, showed a selection of different drums and performed various rhythms on his massive drum kit.


During the course of the session, volunteers from all year groups were chosen to hold and play the different drums. These included a traditional djembe, an African talking drum, a tambour, and a kevlar-skinned military drum.


The session concluded with all the children joining in and playing a variety of percussion instruments including tambourines, maracas and novelty fruit shakers.


If this doesn't inspire some children to take up the drums, I'm not sure what will!


Have a look at the photos below, and watch the video clips of Jeff in action.
