Some school kids in the north-east of England got a great surprise when the Jonas Brothers paid them a visit.

The American stars are touring Europe and popped in to the Gateshead school to spread their love of music.

The visit is part of a national scheme to get more children into music, which is being run by the Government.

The famous trio taught the pupils some guitar skills, showed them how to put a song together and told them what it's like being in a rock band.

The boys said they really loved music and hoped they could share that with the kids at the school.

The musical brothers also took questions from fans before treating them to a special performance.

Don't you just wish every school day could be as exciting as that one?
