Jeff Rich Drum Workshop


On Wednesday 5th February, Jeff Rich (drummer for the rock band 'Status Quo') came to give a Drum Workshop to our year 8 students followed by a Master Class to our aspiring young drummers and popular musicians. The morning session involved a talk about the music business, Jeff's career starting as a keen teenager practising in his flat in Hackney, to playing on tours and events such as 'Knebworth' and 'Live Aid'. The students were treated to performances on a variety of drums, from the historic marching pipe drum to his extended drum kit, on which a lucky few demonstrated their talents. In the afternoon Jeff Rich was serenaded by Music students from yr9-13 who are in the process of preparing for the Trinity Rock & Pop Concert. The pressure was on, performing to such an elite musician. Jeff enjoyed listening and giving feedback to a variety of numbers ranging from 'The Beatles' to 'Oasis'.
