Drumming In Assembly!

In Assembly we had an amazing performance performed by drummers. They were not all ordinary drummers but they were also Cook Island drummers with different kind of drums. There was the Cook Island Drumming group and on my side was Mr Sergeant with the ordinary drum kit.

Mr Sergeant started drumming and did an amazing performance. There were different pitches. He changed his rhythm sometimes and made it interesting and enthusiastic. His hand was vibrating as he was playing. Before long he finished and it was now time for the Cook Island Group.

They started playing and the beats we really fast and it made you want to get up and dance. They inspired the drummers in the school.
