Enterprise Music Scotland Project

S2 pupils were given a short concert on Tuesday 3rd September by two professional musicians (violin and cello).

The project was funded by Enterprise Music Scotland and enabled the pupils to hear music relating to wild plants.  Twelve of our S2 pupils were then taken to Ninewells Community Garden where they developed their composition skills with the musicians using plants that were in the community garden at Ninewells Hospital as their stimulus.  Our pupils really enjoyed this experience.  Thank you to all involved.
