Music school

10th March 2006 at 00:00
Aberdeen City Music School is preparing for its spring concert on March 26, with a programme including Brahms, Grieg, Shostakovich, traditional Scottish music and a newly commissioned work by John Maxwell Geddes.

Scotland's newest music school, based at Dyce Academy, takes gifted musicians from across the country. Pupils follow a curriculum similar to the mainstream, but an extended school day allows for an enhanced music programme. They also have a busy extra-curricular programme of concerts and weekend events.

Several senior pupils go on to the Royal Academy of Music in London, the Royal Northern College of Music in Manchester and the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama.

A primary school bursary scheme funds free lessons for upper primary musicians across Scotland who show outstanding potential. For details, call the director, Stephen Pinnock, tel 01224 774773.
