Solo or en masse – drum beat tops
Matamata College could not be beaten at the Drumline competition at Putaruru Plaza this year.
The school took the group and solo awards in the three-way competition also featuring drummers from Forest View High School and Putaruru College.
Each school played two pieces as a group in the first portion of the competition.
Focus then switched to solo efforts with the best drummers from each school taking part.
The show ended with students from all three schools performing several pieces together.
