Jock McKenzie is leading composer of educational music, specialising particularly in brass and wind. In this short presentation, Jock will talk about his approach to writing educational brass music (from beginner to diploma level), with a special emphasis on the new and different formats and resources necessitated by the recent Covid-19 lockdown(s). Jock McKenzie graduated in trumpet performance from RNCM in 1986. Since then he has worked concurrently as a performer, teacher, composer and arranger, conductor and adjudicator. Education has always been at the heart of all Jock’s work and much of his specialist composing and arranging focusses on aiding this process.
