Education minister becomes instant rock star


MIA member Rocksteady proved music making really is for everyone, from primary school to politician. The Secretary of State for Education Damian Hinds recently visited Rocksteady HQ to hear more about the work they do to introduce young people to playing in rock bands, and ended up joining a band and rocking out on the drums himself…

After watching a performance of Katy Perry’s Roar from a Year 4 and 5 band, Mr Hinds couldn’t resist having a go himself and learnt to play George Ezra’s Shotgun in just five minutes using the Rocksteady method.

Primary school band ‘The Believers’ had a great time with their special guest drummer, and say he can come and join them again any time!

Here is a video clip of the performance:
