Bright Red at SAME Conference 2018

Last week we attended the Scottish Association of Music Education (SAME) Conference.

We had a brilliant time, listening to some very talented, young musicians and getting to meet passionate music teachers from across Scotland.

If you missed the conference, you can still pick up our National 5 Music Study Guide on our website. 

It's fully up-to-date with the latest SQA course and exam changes and provides extensive coverage of the course. 

Contents include:

  • Introduction
  • The Music of Scotland
  • World music
  • Popular music
  • Vocal music
  • Timbre - instruments and how they are played
  • Forms, styles and periods
  • 20th century music
  • Music Literacy
  • Performing skills
  • Course Assessment
  • Glossary of concepts

You can also view sample pages of our Higher Music Study Guide here

We hope you had a fantastic time at the SAME Conference and we hope to see you there again next year.

We've sold our one millionth book!

Last month, we announced we were getting very close to selling our one millionth book.

We are so chuffed to have hit this incredible milestone at the end of August. We are a wee independent publisher, so to hit such a milestone in 10 years is a brilliant achievement for us. We want to say a special thank you to each and everyone of you who have supported us over the past decade, we could not have done this without you!

As a token of our gratitude, we gave away a hamper of goodies to the School who bought our one millionth book. 

Congratulations goes to Mr Gordon Urquhart, Principal Teacher of Modern Languages at Hermitage Academy, who bought our one millionth book - a Higher German Study Guide.

He said, “As a department, we are absolutely delighted to have won the hamper and are really pleased with the quality of the books we have bought from Bright Red as well as the access to the Digital Zone. We look forward to ordering more books from Bright Red in the future.”
