YOUNGSTERS have been testing their music skills by trying out new beats.

Drongan Primary kids performed with volunteer drummers for the day with EPIC.

East Ayrshire’s pipe band are on the hunt for new drummers to join their global success.

They are set to launch a new drumming programme in the new year.

The band will hold classes in Cumnock during the evenings.

The band is led by world champion Karen Warren, 32, who said: “EPIC East Ayrshire Pipe Band Academy are delighted to announce that they will be introducing pipe band drumming to their programme, starting in January.”
