Grant, from British Columbia

A heartfelt thank you for the life-changing experience of Scor!. Not only do you provide learning in an environment of tolerance, humor, and expertise, but you enable the establishment of new life-long friendships and life experiences, the whole while encouraging personal progress to attain mastery over an already difficult task. You enable others to grow as musicians and as people. Nothing is a finer legacy for you, than this.


Nancy from Georgia

Educational, Supportive, Inspiring. It's really great to have been a part of Scor! for over 10 years and to have gotten tremendous feedback concerning my personal journey and ways to continue my musical growth. And I love Beth and Kyle.

Energized and refreshed!

Meaghan from Ohio

"Scor! unlocked my playing, both in technique and confidence. I have soaring energy and renewed enthusiasm to play with my community symphony and to try out new material on my own. The experience was very positive. The faculty were funny and reassuring. They offered constructive feedback without being intimidating. I learned so much! This was a wonderful experience all the way around. I am energized and refreshed."

Dream come true!

Rita from NY
