SCO String Academy

In partnership with St Mary's Music School

Sundays 10, 17 & 24 March 2019 2-5pm | St Thomas of Aquin’s High School, Edinburgh.

Are you a young musician looking for ways to develop your playing? Do you love learning and taking part in ensemble music-making?

The SCO String Academy, in partnership with St Mary’s Music School, is a new FREE opportunity for you to work with Scottish Chamber Orchestra musicians over a series of three Sunday afternoons in the centre of Edinburgh. You need to play violin, viola, cello or double bass, have reached Grade 6+ standard and be able to commit to all three sessions.

Simply complete the booking form below to reserve your place, and wait for further instructions from our colleagues at St Mary’s Music School. There are no auditions and places will be offered on a first come, first served basis.

If you need help with transport costs or access, please contact Mary Walls | 0131 538 7766 to discuss support.

If you do not give us permission, we will ensure that your child does not feature in any official photographs or filmed footage. Please note that we do not have control over images taken by parents or members of the public.
