One great thing about playing in a musical group is not just playing a tune, its also about learning, no matter how old you are.
At senior band rehearsal tonight, percussionist Steve is showing new percussionist Sarah the correct technique for doing a cymbal roll.
Good to see the young ones interested in music, and the more experienced players willing to teach their skill.
