Garnock Academy is one of three high schools across Scotland to have signed up to take part in a unique peer-to-peer, school-to-school musical project.

The project is orchestrated by Scotland’s national music school, in partnership with professional musicians, composers, and Scottish author and poet, Alexander McCall Smith.

Pupils from all three schools will attend a series of online and live compositional workshops with Scots composer, Jay Capperauld, alongside St Mary’s Music School senior pupils and their head of Strings Valerie Pearson.
