About 60 gifted and talented music pupils from University Academy Holbeach were invited to take part in a drumming workshop.

The students, from Years 7, 8 and 9, took part in a variety of musical activities, learning about various instruments and how to play them safely, before turning their hands to body percussion activities and Samba drumming.

University Academy head of music Sam Graper said within a short while they were drumming some complicated rhythms and added: “It was a really good session and the workshop gave them the chance to have a go at something a bit different. They all thoroughly enjoyed the session and got a lot out of it.”
