John Maxwell Geddes visits Baldragon Academy

One of Scotland's leading composers, John Maxwell Geddes, provided a composing workshop for our Advanced Higher pupils.

We were delighted to welcome John Maxwell Geddes to our music department on Monday 6th October as he provided a compositional workshop for some of our Advanced Higher pupils.  Our pupils are using World War 1 poems as a stimulus for their compositions and were motivated by John Maxwell Geddes' "TIE" - technique, imagination and use of ear.  It was exciting for the pupils and staff to work with one of Scotland's leading composers and to form another partnership with a professional composer/musician.

Thank you to the RSNO for organising this as part of our three year community project.
