A musician from pop band Rudimental roped in his friends to help build a new state-of-the-art music studio at his old Kentish Town primary school.
Mark Crown, who plays trumpet at live shows for the group, was heavily involved in the creation of the £40,000 orange-walled studio over the summer.
A former pupil and trumpet teacher at the school, Mr Crown returned to Rhyl Primary School, in Rhyl Street last Thursday to officially open the studio, which is fitted out with computer tablets, recording equipment and musical instruments.
Expressive arts co-ordinator Harriet Carter said: “The creative curriculum is so important to the children here who otherwise just wouldn’t have the chance to play.”
The studio will be open for community use. Contact the school on 020 7485 4899 to enquire.
