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 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.
