Working in small groups, Andy took the students through the context and rhythms of African Drumming with students working together to create a brilliant sound.
The day culminated with Andy working with every student in Alway having a percussion instrument to play and the Neuadd was rocking by the end of the day!
The workshop was part of the preparations for this year’s Alway Production of ‘The Lion King Junior’ with our team of percussion students particularly benefitting from the workshop just before they start musical rehearsals with percussion director, Gareth Hamlin. We were very fortunate to have Andy who has over 35-year’s experience as a professional musician. He has played with some of the leading Musicians, Artists and Orchestras in the world for live performances and film, television, and recording sessions. He has covered all genres of music as well as playing in the orchestra for many of London’s West End Shows. As the images show, the students had great fun and gained a lot from the experience.
