From the Windies via Whitby, the beat goes on.
Youngsters at Abingdon Primary School are trying their hand at playing steel drums.
They were joined by pupils from Stakesby Community Primary School in Whitby, who already have their own steel band.
They performed and then held workshops for the Abingdon pupils.
Headteacher Bob Eastwood tried his hand at the steel drums.
"I had two children helping me and they were very tolerant of my shortcomings," he said.
Abingdon has just been loaned a set of steel drums for a year through a music scheme. They will form part of this year's summer school and when the new academic year starts, the instruments will be used in lessons and as an after-school activity.
