Friends and Donors

Join us as a Friend or make a donation and help provide vital support to develop the next generation of musicians, and be part of St Mary’s Music School’s exciting journey of musical development.

St Mary’s Music School Friends and Donors help to support the education of our pupils, to offer bursaries and to enable us to continue to take our music into the community through a programme of masterclasses.

As a Friend or Donor, you will receive information about our concerts and special events that take place throughout the year, such as student organised performances, as well as staff and visiting musician masterclasses.

In addition, we will keep you informed about the progress of the Royal High School Preservation Trust’s transformational project to convert the former Royal High School into a new home for St Mary’s Music School to reinforce its status as Scotland’s national music school.

Now is an exciting time to become a Friend and be part of our promising future to grow pupil numbers, extend our outreach programmes and to be a new performance space for Edinburgh.

Friend's giving is from £10 a month and donations of any amount are welcome.
