Whatever the Season...

Please support St Mary's Music School

Your support is vital to realising the potential of Scotland's young musicians.

Each year the School needs to raise over £200,000 to support bursaries, masterclasses and outreach programmes, instruments, and the specialist teaching that enhances the student experience.

Become a Friend, support the Bursary Fund with a donation of any amount, or become a Patron.

St Mary’s Music School is Scotland’s only independent specialist music school, selecting pupils for musical ability and potential, regardless of means, with up to full financial support available.
