Why Online?

How will I benefit?

  • At Your Fingertips

    Without the effort and unpredictability of traveling to an in-person event, online you can easily reach a helpful boatload of resources, experiences, and interactions to help you grow, improve, and enjoy playing even more!

  • Enjoy Connecting with Others!

    All our online programs have an interactive component, so that playing doesn't become only practicing by yourself. Get inspired by connecting with others!

FAQs

...about online programs

  • When will your online program start?

    Signups are now open to become a Scor! Strings Member, and also for courses and individual instruction. See the Online Offerings Page for more details.

  • How long will the online program last?

    Our online programs will continue to be offered throughout the year. You can sign up for an ongoing membership, various 6-week interactive courses (offered in fall, winter, & spring), or a series of 4 topical individual instruction sessions. See our Online Offerings page for more info.

  • There are a lot of online offerings, and it's a lot to take in. What should I do first?

    If you're unsure of what to start with, become a Scor! Strings Member. This is our foundational offering. Then, if you want enrichment with a course or extra help with individual instruction, you can seek it later. As a member, you'll also get discounts on the other parts of our program as well!

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

    Yes! You can use your credit to sign up for one of our online interactive courses, being offered at intervals throughout the year. When our signup with credits is ready, you'll find out via email. (Your other choice is to use the credit for an in-person event in the summer of 2022, as your credit will last through December 31, 2022.)

  • Why should I sign up 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 musicians as teachers & artists, especially in this time of uncertainty and upheaval, to ensure that there is still music and beauty in our world for years to come.

Future Offerings

Look forward to these additional offerings coming soon!

This interactive course will enable you to overcome your obstacles, unlock your true potential, and play with freedom and enjoyment.
