It was great to be able to open the MMF gates to our local community recently for the BeatFest Family Festival, showcasing our fantastic and varied percussion department with special guests harpist Tara Minton, renowned tabla player Yousuf Ali Khan, drummer Tom Early and the Panash Youth Steel Orchestra not to mention our colourful Head of Percussion Lilia Iontcheva. A special thanks to John Merriman from Crown Lane Studio for taking care of the sound.
Before you scroll down to see the photos, did you know that MMF offers more percussion opportunities than you can shake a (drum)stick at? As well as drum kit and percussion lessons we have as many as 14 different groups, bands and ensembles which welcome percussionists (subject to suitability and availability).
