Drum masterclass

A group of students were lucky enough to be picked to do a morning’s drum masterclass with a former Helenswood and sixth form student, Beth Mepham. Students began by learning how to start a beat and by the end of the session, could play a whole song through!

The boys thoroughly enjoyed the morning and their feedback was excellent...“I really loved it and would like to do it again”….“ I want a drum kit at home so I can learn.” 

It was really worthwhile seeing students persevere and achieve their goals of “banging out” a recognisable tune. We had a lot of very happy smiling students by the end of the session. Here’s to the next one! The students were a credit to the academy displaying exemplar behaviour and manners to our visitor.
