Status Quo’s Jeff Rich Delivers Drumming Masterclass
On Tuesday 25th January, 52 Denbigh students took part in a drum masterclass held by former Status Quo and Def Leppard drummer, Jeff Rich.
Students learnt about the history of the drum, where it originated and how it developed into the instrument we know today. Students were able to play the drums as part of an ensemble, some even got the chance to play on Jeff’s very own, 15 piece drum kit!
Jeff kindly signed one of the music departments' snare drums and has written signatures for each of the students that took part, he then finished the masterclass with an improvised drum piece that blew everyone away!
“It was amazing to see our students so engaged and inspired by the masterclass, Jeff was very complimentary of our students and school. It was great to hear that many of students want to take up playing the drums ”
