Pupils at an east Suffolk primary school took part in an award-wining musical workshop before giving an energetic performance with their classmates.

Professional bassist Marcel Pusey, and Sam Agard, who has drummed for Tom Jones and Paloma Faith, returned to Sir Robert Hitcham’s Primary School in Framlingham on Thursday to deliver their Bassistry Music workshops.

Kate Mawson, who is a musical co-ordinator at the school, along with Carla Ashberry, said every group was given an “active and engaging” session exploring the different elements of music before learning a song to perform in afternoon assembly.

“People talk about music being a universal language and we could really see that every child, regardless of ability was loving getting involved,” she added. “We were really privileged to be able to offer these workshops and there was such excitement around the school.”
