Biography

For the past two years, Graeme, from Windygates in Fife, has been a student on the RSAMD YouthWorks programme and is now studying for a degree in music also at RSAMD, Glasgow.

Thanks to a commitment and discipline rarely seen in an eighteen-year-old, Graeme has made enormous progress in playing the bassoon and he now shows great potential to become a bassoonist of note. One of his recent performances was of a concerto for bassoon and trumpet with John Wallace, principal of RSAMD, on trumpet.

 

In preparation for his musical studies, Graeme has been raising finances to buy a performance standard bassoon.

How the Award Helped

The Dewar Arts Award helped Graeme buy a professional standard bassoon.



Thank you very much for this wonderful opportunity - I can now develop my playing and in the long run be better prepared for the profession.
