Thank you to Phil Wilson of Inspirational Rhythms ( for spending the day at Milestone Academy recently. Several groups of students enjoyed fun packed musical workshops known as drum circles.

Seated in a circle, students followed and then led as they played drums and plastic tubes known as boomwhackers. Using plush animals as a prompt, students easily engaged with the rhythms of “pink flamingo, with long legs” and “black cat, jumping cat” to name but two.

These workshops have been very popular at Milestone Academy with high levels of engagement from both students and staff and we look forward to a further visit from Phil to a Milestone satellite soon.

“The students all had a great time. It was lovely to see them all engaged and learning a new skill. The session was pitched so that every one of our students was able to be included. A very big thank you to Phil and we look forward to his next visit”
