Did you know about SCOTS?

evelyn @ 2:54 pm

SCOTS is The Scottish Churches’ Organist Training Scheme.  It has been running for more than a decade.   Using an adviser system and training days, it helps organists of all denominations improve skills and technique, and gain confidence.  It is especially useful to beginner organists, or those moving across from the piano.

The next SCOTS Training Day is at St Leonard’s Parish Church, St Andrews on November 21, 2009, from 10.00 a.m. to 3.30 pm. Participants should bring a packed lunch. Tea and coffee will be provided. Cost of the day is £15 (£12 concessions).

The day includes workshops with :

1  Tom Wilkinson on organ repertoire
2  Alan McGeoch on music theory
3 Douglas Galbraith on understanding worship and the role of the musicians, with discussion about the constraints and opportunities in participants’ own parishes.

For more information about the day and a registration form, email the SCOTS membership secretary, Susan Wilson, susanwilson@scotsorgan.org.uk . For more info about SCOTS and its syllabus, have a look at www.scotsorgan.org.uk/scots-01.htm
