SCO String Academy

IN PARTNERSHIP WITH ST MARY'S MUSIC SCHOOL

CALLING ALL AMBITIOUS YOUNG STRING PLAYERS!

Would you like to perform with musicians from the Scottish Chamber Orchestra, make new friends and develop your musicianship?

String Academy 12019 COURSES ARE NOW COMPLETED. WATCH THIS SPACE FOR FUTURE COURSES!

SCO String Academy offers a free opportunity for school-aged string players to work with top professionals over a series of five Sunday afternoon sessions in the centre of Edinburgh. Conducted by SCO Violinist Gordon Bragg and tutored by SCO musicians, the SCO String Academy is open to violin, viola, cello and double bass players who have reached Grade 6+ and who are able to commit to all sessions. There are no auditions, and places are offered on a first-come, first-served basis.

Participants in March 2019 told us it was fun, a great way to meet new friends and to learn new repertoire from inspiring musicians. Make sure you apply as soon as possible as places are allocated on a first-come, first-served basis.

If you need help with transport costs or access, please contact Susan White swhite@st-marys-music-school.co.uk | 0131 538 7766 to discuss support.

I was a bit scared at first because I was like – am I good enough? Will I fit in? but it’s absolutely fine and if you’re not as good as others it’s not a problem - there are so many ways to improve your playing
