SCO Wind and Brass Academy Spring 2021

The Wind and Brass Academy is open to flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon, French horn, trumpet, trombone and tuba players who have reached at least Grade 6 standard. Work with our SCO tutors to hone your audition and performance skills during two online masterclasses.
