  • I have a credit from a cancelled Scor! Camp. Can I use it for any program?

    Yes! You can use your credit to sign up for one of our interactive courses, being offered at intervals throughout the year. You can also use your credit for an annual membership or request a coupon for merchandise at the Scor! Store. When a new signup with credits is available, you'll find out via email. (Your other choice is to use the credit for an in-person event in the summer of 2023, as your credit will last through December 31, 2023.) For more info regarding credits, check out our credits page through the link below.

  • Why should I sign up for your offerings when I can just watch free videos on YouTube?

    Sure, you can find free videos on YouTube. What you can't know is the quality and accuracy of the instruction, the expertise of the instructor, and how the content applies uniquely to you. We can help you learn, grow, and be inspired in a way that random searches for YouTube videos cannot! Also, this is your chance to support quality musical education, and to ensure that there is still music , learning, and beauty in our world for years to come.

  • What if I'm already taking lessons?

    Lesson teachers don't have time to address everything. Scor! programs are designed to fill in that gap. Instead of duplicating what you get in private lessons, we'll help you put into practice what you've been hearing from your lesson teacher. You'll benefit immensely by combining Scor! offerings with lessons. You'll learn so much more when you have added instruction from another viewpoint. Our instruction tends to be more topical, and more sequential, so you can apply it to anything you're working on in lessons, and it will enhance your learning a great deal.
