Hi all.  Welcome to scottlaird.net!

My work at NCSSM has ramped up for the 2016-2017 academic year.  For NCSSM  students (new and returning), please visit my Class Page for links to various resources and assignments.

I want to sincerely thank the North Carolina Symphony for the wonderful honor of being named recipient of the Maxine Swalin Outstanding Music Educator for 2016.  I am humbled and honored by the  recognition.

The schedule is already starting to fill up for the 2016-2017 school year.  I will be appearing at a number of orchestra festivals.  I have added several new dates to my "Appearances" page.  The next NCSSM Orchestra concert is Feb 3, 7:00 pm featuring Beethoven's Symphony VII, NCSSM ETC Auditorium.
We also will be presenting a light version of Tchaikovsky's Nutcracker with the NCSSM Dance Ensemble on December 9 at 7:00 PM.

Please check out my blog, Thoughts of a String Educator, periodically.  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!
~Scott
