Hi all.  Welcome to scottlaird.net!

2018 has started with many wonderful  events.  I had a great time giving masterclasses for the National El Sistema USA Conference and conducitng the Michigan (MSBOA) Middle School All State Orchestra in January!  Also, the NCSSM Orchestra Collaborative Masterworks Concert featuring Mozart's Jupiter Symhpony (#41) was a huge success. (See my YouTube page for video!)  The NCSSM Orchestra will soon begin preparing for our annual concerto concert which will be held on May 18.  We will also be participating in the ECU Four Sessons Chamber Music Festival at NCSSM, March 24, 25.  I am also really looking forward to spending some time in the Greater DC area, conducting the DC Catholic Schools Honor Orchestra and clinicing students in Charles County, in coming weeks!

Believer fans, contnue to watch for mew music!  I continue to have involvement in  several of the new songs.  It is great to be working with Kurt, Joey, and the Believer crew again after all these years. www.believerband.com Check out the first release that I play on called "Return to Zero"  from 2 of 5.  There will certainly be more in coming months.

I am now booking appearances into 2019 and  I have recently added several new dates to my "Appearances" page.  I am in the midst of a very busy Advent Seaso and have really enjoyed all of the great events.

Please check out my blog, Thoughts of a String Educator, periodically.  I will be posting regularly throughout the summer at Interlochen.  You can also follow me as Orchestraguy on Twitter.

As always, don't hesitate to contact me if I can help you out in any way.

All my best!
