South Holland pupils have been inspired to progress their music skills by a world-class performer.

Drummer Pat Garvey has led drumming and percussion workshops for six schools in the county, including Gosberton Clough and Risegate, Quadring and Bourne Westfield Primary schools, in a project called Rhythmic Routes.

Project manager Liz Lenten, of Scarlet Community Music Club, said the project was about musical development and progression, and not just participation.

Liz, a qualified advisor for Trinity Guildhall Arts Award, said the children were also working towards accreditation in that scheme.

She said: “The kids have been absolutely amazing. They have worked really hard because this has been a step above participation. They have had to progress and they seem to have thoroughly enjoyed it and been inspired by Pat.”

There is a project finale at South Holland Centre, Spalding, on November 30 (7pm) – free to those associated with the project and £5 to members of the public.
