Johnson reckons that between 1,000 and 2,000 fiddle tunes must have been written in schools over the past 10 or 12 years.

Johnson suggests that a collection of tunes could become a national symbol and probably sell well. But would the SQA look with favour on his title, The Best of Scottish Exam Fiddling 1985-95?
