Developed in partnership between the Scottish Chamber Orchestra and St Mary’s Music School, SCO String Academy in Autumn 2021 offers free opportunities for aspiring school-aged string musicians from across Scotland and beyond to work online with SCO musicians over a series of three Sunday afternoon sessions. Participants are then invited to take part in a live play-through session with SCO musicians at George Watson’s College in Edinburgh.
The String Academy is directed by SCO Violin Gordon Bragg and offers coaching to school aged violin, viola, cello and double bass players who have reached at least Grade 6 standard.
There are no auditions and places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.
Financial support towards travel costs is available.
