Musical Legacy from Pete Handley

The Wells Percussion Department are honoured to have taken possession of a fantastic Roland Electronic drum kit originally belonging to former Wells percussion teacher, Pete Handley. Pete, a much-loved member of the Wells community, who introduced the School’s Drumline, tragically passed away in 2014. His family have generously given his drum kit to the School, so that Wells musicians can benefit.

Head of student experience, and percussion, Jayne Obradovic, said, “We miss Pete enormously, his passion for music education was infectious and this generous gift is a fitting way to ensure that his musical legacy and commitment to education lives on through Wells percussionists and into the future.
