Scrapers and Tooters

Scrapers and Tooters Dundee

Perform concert repertoire under the guidance of our expert conductor and SCO players

Scrapers & Tooters offers amateur musicians a great opportunity to enjoy a weekend of informal music-making - rehearsing as an orchestra, working with a conductor and receiving expert tuition and coaching from SCO players. The repertoire is selected from the Orchestra's main season concerts, giving participants a real experience of playing with the SCO. 

The next Scrapers & Tooters course will take place on Saturday 5 and Sunday 6 May 2018 at Hutchesons’ Grammar School, Glasgow.

To apply, please download the application form below and return to Joanna Burns by email on or by post. Applications will close on Friday 2 March 2018 and if the course is oversubscribed, places will be allocated by ballot. We will contact you to let you know whether your application has been successful on Monday 5 March 2018.

Due to the popularity of Scrapers & Tooters and the limited numbers of places available, we are sometimes oversubscribed in certain sections of the orchestra. We have recently reviewed our booking process and made changes which we hope will simplify and clarify the booking system for everyone. Please do let us know if the new system presents you with any problems.

For more information, please email Joanna Burns on

This was one of the most exhilarating experiences of my life! The opportunity to play as a 100% amateur musician under highly regarded and experienced conductor and tutors, who already have illustrious careers, is still something I can’t believe exists.
