THE BRONX - Students of M.S. 129 were treated Wednesday to a visit from Bad Company and Free drummer Simon Kirke.

The middle-schoolers rocked out with the English drummer, who gave pointers on how to groove like a professional.

Nonprofit organization Little Kids Rock provides musical instruments to 320 music programs around the city, including 50 in the Bronx. It has also trained 1,700 teachers nationwide.

Kirke says he came to the school because he was moved by the music program's outreach.
