Drumming Workshop

Added: May 16th, 2016

On Monday 16th May, Jeff Rich who was one of the drummers in the band Status Quo, joined us to deliver a workshop.  He demonstrated his amazing drumming skills to the students and took them through the history of how the drum has developed over the years.  The workshop was attended by over 100 Royds Hall Secondary students as well as year 6s from Beech and the percussion group from Golcar Junior and Infant School. 

Some students were given the opportunity to play on Jeff’s own personal drum kit!  At the end of the session, each student was given a percussion instrument and everybody played together whilst Jeff played a variety of rhythms on his kit.  It was an exciting opportunity for the students to meet somebody who has had so much success in the music industry.
