We are working with music teachers and pupils studying Higher Music, before culminating in a performance on 31 August.
New Music Makers is an exciting and ambitious programme to support the development of young composers in schools across Scotland. Designed to inspire and support composing, the project demonstrates how a professional ensemble working in partnership with a school can create a genuine practical legacy, enabling the school to take the work forward independently.
The sessions, led by Red Note’s John Harris, will give 27 pupils all studying Higher Music an insight into some of the ideas and compositional techniques used by professional composers. Four workshops, running from 1 June to 31 August, culminate in an informal performance on 31 August, featuring the pupil’s new compositions performed by Red Note musicians David Munn, Jo Nicholson, Tom Hankey and John Harris.
If you would like more information, or would like your school to participate in New Music Makers, please contact Project Manager Siobhan Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org
New Music Makers is made possible thanks to support from Creative Scotland, The Esmée Fairbairn Foundation, The Robertson Trust and The Radcliffe Trust.
