3Sundays 16, 23 February and 1 March 2020
2 - 5pm
St Thomas of Aquin’s High School, Edinburgh

Join us for our first SCO Wind Academy in partnership with St Mary’s Music School - a free opportunity for you to work with expert SCO musicians over a series of three Sunday afternoon sessions in the centre of Edinburgh. The course is open to school-aged flute, clarinet, oboe, bassoon and French horn players who have reached at least Grade 6 standard and who are able to commit to all three sessions. Come and explore familiar repertoire as well as some less well-known music for wind ensembles.

SCO String Academy participants in March 2019 told us it was fun, a great way to make 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 | 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
