S4 Pupil Achievement

drummerCongratulations to Tom (S4) who won the UK Drummer of the Year 2016 competition.  This year’s competition was held in Lemington Spa on Sunday 7 February.  Tom was in the final 10 from over 400 applicants and was also the only Scottish finalist.  Tom was judged by an acclaimed panel featuring drummers from Kasabian, Robbie Williams’ band and Ash Soan.  As the winner, Tom will also perform at the London Drum Show as well as other events throughout the year.  Tom started drumming at the age of 11 and has been dedicated and committed throughout his career.  Tom drums in the Senior Concert Band and also accompanies the Senior Choir.  He has also recently been selected by the National Youth Jazz Orchestra of Scotland as their drummer for next year.  Tom also plays gigs in and around Glasgow including weddings and events as a part of the Williams Quartet.  This is a fantastic achievement.  Well done!
