Excited Welwyn Garden City pupils enjoyed a drumming masterclass by Status Quo’s former drummer Jeff Rich yesterday.

Rich gave 335 children a brief history of drums and treated them to a performance.

All of the children were invited to play an instrument and the workshop was received enthusiastically by all.

Music co-ordinator Rosie Burchett said: “All of the children really loved learning about the different styles of drums and the performance by Jeff.

“We hope that children will have been inspired by Jeff to take up a musical instrument or to form a band.”
