A military band made a big impression as they delivered a large-scale performance with music pupils.

Havering Music School, The Walk, Hornchurch, welcomed The Band of the Coldstream Guards, which regularly plays at both Buckingham Palace and Windsor Castle, on Saturday.

Havering Music school is a specialist music service that teaches instrumental lessons to children of any age or standard.

The school, provided by Havering Council, focuses on developing sound technical and musical skills to promote self-expression and confidence.

The band worked with students and community music groups and played hymns and anthems to entertain the crowds on the day.

Senior manager Karen Tweddle said: “It was wonderful, the experience you can’t explain it, it was like going to a live concert.

“It was empowering and the fact they were fully dressed in military gear just made it even more special.

“It was both an emotionally and musically charged event.”
