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.

Booking for the course is now closed. However, we are looking for more viola players, double bass players and trumpet players to take part in the course. If you are interested, please contact Joanna Burns by email or by phone on 0131 478 8342.

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.
