Virtual Open Morning

Take a peek behind the scenes of Scotland's national music school

Online

Sunday March 7th, 2021, 9.15am to 10.45am

If you are a young musician or a parent of a musically-talented child then this is the perfect opportunity to discover the world of St Mary's Music School. Meet current pupils, take a virtual tour of the school, find out what lessons are like and take a peek inside the world of our instrumental pupils. 

This online event will give young musicians and their parents a real insight into life at Scotland's national music school, one of five designated specialist music schools in the UK and the only one in Scotland.

You can discover how music plays such a huge part in every pupil's timetable, why boarding is such good fun and how school fees are supported by the Scottish Government's Aided Places scheme in recognition of our unique status. You can find out why our academic results are so exceptional, even though our only criteria for entry is musical ability and potential. Or you can take the opportunity to ask any questions you may have.
