It is with great sadness we share that one of our close members, John Maxwell Geddes, passed away this morning. John was a fantastically creative composer bringing emotion, fun and joy into his music. A huge influence on the musical community, John passed on his knowledge by teaching many Scottish composers who are successfully working in the sector today.

John was also a regular visitor to the SMC office, dropping by with a smile on his face and biscuits in hand to share. We will always have happy and fond memories of John and our thoughts are with his family and many friends at this time.
