Drum Workshop With Jeff Rich

Year 8 students moved to a new beat this week as they enjoyed a drum workshop with Jeff Rich, former drummer of Status Quo.

The 100 minute workshop explored some of the history of percussion and instruments from around the world, before a demonstration of some drum rudiments and a tour of the extended rock kit.

After a blistering solo that you can see in the video below, all students performed in one of two hundred strong percussion ensembles which we're sure everybody in Block C of the building enjoyed! Finally, some of our talented student drummers were invited to showcase their skills on Jeff's professional kit.

Thanks to everyone involved in the workshop for making it such a memorable afternoon.
