From the SCO:
The Scottish Chamber Orchestra and St Mary’s Music School are delighted to announce a new partnership programme for young string players in and around Edinburgh.
SCO String Academy in partnership with St Mary’s Music School is a FREE initiative for young musicians who play violin, viola, cello or double bass and have reached Grade 6+.
Young musicians from all walks of life will work alongside SCO musicians to develop their technique, musicianship and orchestral playing. In addition to the enhanced psychological wellbeing that group music-making confers, participants will benefit by developing key life skills such as social confidence, teamwork, communication skills, and a sense of accomplishment.
