Red Note composers and players working alongside staff and pupils from Oakwood Primary School, Barrhead High School, Woodfarm High School, Lochend Community High School and other Glasgow secondary schools to explore and create new music in the classroom.
Trying to encourage an insecure teen to open up their imagination and let it run wild can be as challenging as trying to herd cats. Not only that but to transform their imagination into a refined, structured, musical composition for multiple instruments that satisfies the outcomes and criteria for examination is a task that often fills the poor petrified teen, and their teacher, with fear.
New Music Makers is designed to inspire and support composing within schools and 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.
