Alan Cameron studied composition with John Maxwell Geddes at Notre Dame College of Education, Glasgow (now the School of Education, University of Glasgow). His works include a plethora of original classroom pieces for young people, a wide variety of music for television and radio, and various other works for small chamber groups and solo piano pieces. Alan performed in bands in the 1980s with Tom Morton, Ricky Ross, Ewan Vernal and Graeme Duffin. His association with Graeme led to a partnership with Ian Morrow (WetWetWet programmer) in the composition of various themes for TV including ‘BBC Reporting Scotland News’ in 1992. As a teacher, Alan has led his music students in schools to songwriting success on a grand scale. In 2000, his S3 class composed, performed and recorded a song with Sir George Martin in Air Studios, London which then featured as a track on 100,000 CDs sold in Marks and Spencer stores. More recently, in 2014, Alan has had his music published by Trinity College London in a series of books ‘Music Tracks’. Also in 2014 he composed the music for the BBC documentary ‘Jane Haining – the Scot Who Died at Auschwitz’.
