Open Day

Talented young musicians and their parents are warmly invited to come along to a St Mary’s Music School Open Day. These are a fantastic way to find out more about us and see, and hear, first hand, what we have to offer those with an outstanding talent.

Next Open Day

Our next Open Day will be from 2.30pm to 4.30pm on Saturday 6 October 2019 

Visiting at Open Day will give you, your parents and teachers the best opportunity to see the school in action and meet and talk with our current pupils and staff. There will be guided tours of the school, including boarding facilities, and music from instrumentalists and choristers.

Visitors will discover the outstanding quality of the teaching and the breadth of opportunities available both inside and outside the classroom and, for choristers from Primary 4 to Senior 2, the exceptional benefits of combining first-class academic and all-round education at St Mary’s Music School with singing in the renowned Choir of St Mary’s Episcopal Cathedral.

For children aged 4 to 12, there will be a chance to find out about our popular and long-established non-selective Saturday Music Classes, which include Dalcroze Eurhythmics as well as instrumental tuition, singing, theory and Kodály classes.

Advisory auditions 

Not sure if music school is right for you? If you are a talented musician but are unsure of your level or whether you would be successful in applying to music school then why not attend one of our advisory auditions, or, if you live too far away, send us a recording/video. Advisories are a great way to get honest, constructive and supportive feedback from our Director of Music and there is no charge. Places on our Advisory Audition Days go quickly so if you would like to find out more and secure your place then contact Mary Walls on
