Hi all.  Welcome to scottlaird.net!

My work at NCSSM for the 2016-2017 academic year is now moving toward the commencement!  Students: please visit my Class Page for links to various resources and assignments.

I was recently interviewed by Christian Howes for his Creative Strings Podcast.

Believer fans will be pleased to know that I am currently tracking for one 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

I want to sincerely thank the American String Teachers Association and North Carolina Symphony for the wonderful honors of being named recipient of the Elizabeth A.H. Green Award for 2017 and the Maxine Swalin Outstanding Music Educator for 2016.  I am humbled and honored by both of these incredible  recognitions.

2016-2017 has certainly been a busy and eventful school year. I have started booking 2017-2018 and into 2019 and  I have added several new dates to my "Appearances" page.  The next NCSSM Orchestra concert is April 30, 3:00 pm featuringc student concerto solists at NCSSM ETC Auditorium.

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!
