Denstone College Fifth Form pupil Nathan Shingler, Drummer and GCSE Music student, reached the National Finals of the 2018 Young Drummer of the Year held at the Royal Spa Centre, Leamington Spa.

It is a tremendous accolade to reach the finals, as only 10 finalists are chosen from around the UK, but Nathan played superbly and only narrowly missed out on the 2018 title. Aside from the competition, he also got to meet many professionals from the percussion industry and drummers from the likes of The Vamps, Kasabian and Paloma Faith. At Denstone College, Nathan drums in the Swing Band and is currently preparing to record a solo piece with them very soon.
