Annette Street Drummers
Annette Street Drummers is our long-running group drumming project working with pupils at Annette Street Primary in Govanhill. Currently supported through Creative Scotland's YMI strand, the Annette Street Drummers gives an amazing music-making opportunity to young people living in some of the most challenging circumstances in our city.
Keeping the beat together requires concentration and discipline, as well as great communication – essential skills in all aspects of life. The group have gone from strength to strength since the project began more than 6 years ago, winning an incredible Bronze Medal for their performance at Indoor Music Games/Soundsport Glasgow at Bellahouston Park. With performances in front of their schoolmates and at community events in Govanhill, Shawlands and Mount Florida under their belts their confidence is always growing, and we can’t wait to see what they get up to next – keep your ears to the ground for some percussive performances at community events soon.
