South West Music in Hardinge St was rocking last Friday night — literally.

Nine enthusiastic drummers, from 10-17 years old, performed in front of a 55 strong crowd for SMW’s mid-year concert.

Styles of music included rock, country and modern.

Teacher Campbell Robinson, who also performed, said despite a few technical issues the students performed ‘‘really well’’.

‘‘The students have been playing anywhere from six months to five years,’’ he said.

‘‘They all do a really great job and get really excited to go on stage.’’

Mr Robinson is still an active performer and says he enjoys teaching kids.

‘‘I’ve played in various bands. I’m still playing in a band in Swan Hill,’’ he said.

The students will perform again at the end of the year.
