SYOSSET, NY — Phil Collen, guitarist for the rock band Def Leppard, recently surprised a group of high school students who were tuned in for a virtual music lesson.
The 13 students didn’t know the British musician would be joining their lesson, Patch.com reported.
Collen started by performing his band’s 1987 hit “Pour Some Sugar On Me."
He then allowed the students to play their own renditions of the hit song and offered feedback.
Collen also talked about his music journey and offered advice to the aspiring musicians: “It really comes down to putting the effort in, practicing and getting the technique down," he said. “It’s all a learning curve. You gotta be you.”
According to Patch.com, the students were granted free access to the Yousician platform to continue developing their musical skills over the summer.
The students will also receive a free signed Def Leppard shirt.
