Become a Friend of St Mary's Music School  

At St Mary's Music School we welcome young people from across Scotland and beyond to our dedicated and energetic learning community and support our pupils to flourish and excel, both musically and academically. 

Our Friends are at the very heart of our School community, helping us to fund everything from Masterclasses with international musicians to extensive performance opportunities, from tuning our fleet of pianos to ensuring we attract the very best teachers across all subject areas. It is thanks to our Friends and Donors, that we can support our exceptional young musicians to become the soloists, orchestral performers, conductors, composers and music teachers of tomorrow. 

If you share our passion for music, please help our young musicians thrive and realise their potential by becoming a Friend.
