Percussion Prize

Congratulations to S6 pupil Max, who recently won the Colin Currie Young Percussionist Award at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland.

Performing 'Libertango' by E Sammut on the marimba and 'American Suite' by Guy G. Gaurthreaux II on the snare drum, Max was judged by Principal of Percussion from the Scottish Ballet, Martin Willis. 

Now in his sixth year at RCS and taking part in the competition for a third time, Max said: "As this is my final year at RCS, it means a huge amount to win because I worked so hard to stand out. It's an absolutely amazing feeling to join the legacy of the competition."
