Camera Obscura Rehearse
Two members of the band Camera Obscura visited and joined in a rehearsal for the drumming performance at the recent Scottish Music Awards held at the old Fruitmarket Glasgow on 23 November.
Tracyanne Campbell and Carey Lander joined in the rehearsal with pupils from St Modans School, Stirling and the drumming group, Barulho Beat. The pupils, who have autism, all receive music therapy from Nordoff Robbins therapist, Jo Edgar, pictured far left. Performing at the Awards for the first time was an exciting opportunity for them. Their participation was made possible thanks to matched funding from Arts & Business Scotland for Braehead Arena's support of the Scottish Music Awards for the first time.
Camera Obscura won the King Tut's Songwriting Award at the Awards
A huge thank you to everyone who supported the recent Scottish Music Awards, our biggest fundraising event of the year helping to raise an incredible £145,000! This is essential to ensure we continue to take music to change the lives people of all ages in Scotland who are facing all kinds of health challenges.

Make Music, Change Lives
Nordoff-Robbins Music Therapy in Scotland is the only music therapy charity in the country. We use music in innovative and inspiring ways to connect to children and adults who face physical and mental challenges as a result of disability, illness or conditions such as autism and dementia. Our therapists work in schools, hospitals, hospices, care homes and in our own clinics.
Your donations help us to meet the growing need for music therapy as people increasingly recognise how it can dramatically change lives. We need around £500,000 a year to fund our work and rely on the generosity of our donors to keep our services accessible to the people who need us most. £50 could provide one music therapy session; £1000 could sponsor a therapist for a year.
