Developed in partnership between the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and St Mary’s Music School, SCO Percussion Academy in Autumn 2021 offers a free opportunity for aspiring school-aged percussion musicians to work with SCO Timpani Louise Goodwin. Louise will explore exciting contemporary repertoire over a series of three Sunday afternoon online sessions. Participants are then invited to take part in a live session with Louise at George Watson’s College in Edinburgh.
We are accepting applications from orchestral percussion players and drumkit players with some orchestral performing experience who have reached at least Grade 5 standard. We encourage percussionists to join us whether you have your instrument with you or not! We will provide advice on how to create instruments using household items.
There are no auditions and places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Financial support towards travel costs is available.
