THE roar of the crowd is deafening.

The silence that falls as the band begins to play "took her breath away".

And for former Scots PGC College student Grace Peterson, she is living her dream.

For the past eight months, Grace has been in Scotland training the tenor drummers at Queen Victoria School for the Edinburgh Tattoo, she too with her own place as a drum sergeant in possibly the biggest pipes and drums event in the world.

"When we spoke to Grace she said it was the most incredible experience of her life," Mum Christine said.

The three-week festival is to be aired in Australia on New Year's Eve.
