ONE of the country's most gifted young violinists has visited a primary school to help inspire young musicians.
Ruth Rogers took time out from her schedule to attend Bassingbourn Primary School and held a number of workshops.
The violinist spent the day working with pupils aged five-11 years and showed them how to be creative, gave them tips and explained the importance of practising.
Music co-ordinator Paula Hnat said: "The children really got involved with Ruth's workshops.
"She had them reacting to different pieces by using happy and sad music.
"She also told them the importance of practising, and as a result a lot of the pupils have said they would go home and practice more, some have even said that they would like to learn how to play the violin.
