On Saturday 14th July members of the Warren School performed at Walthamstow Garden party as part of the Drumworks programme. They joined students of all age ranges and abilities from schools across East London to give a public performance and add to the carnival feel of the event. The beats and patterns performed were created by pupils from The Warren as well as from other schools. Drumworks is a unique project as it not only teaches pupils the discipline of learning a skill, it improves memory, coordination, self-esteem and confidence. This performance was as energetic as ever and meant that pupils had the chance to take part in a high profile public event as performers and as musicians.
Here’s what some of our pupils had to say about it:
“It was a chance to meet a lot of new people and to perform to the public”
“After we finished playing the atmosphere was brilliant and a lady came up to us and said we made her day. It made me feel so proud of myself and that I am a proper musician who has accomplished something”
“I’d never heard of these sort of events before Drumworks. It makes me realise how many events go on all over London everyday. It’s made me want to look up more things to do at the weekend”
