Hi all.  Welcome to scottlaird.net!

The academic year is winding down and the NCSSM Orchestra has one more performance. Our annual Concerto Concert will be held on May 17 at 7:00 PM and will feature student soloists on 5 different concerto movements by Mendelssohn, Grieg, Elgar, and Wieniawski.

I am excited to be teaching at the Univeristy of Michigan String Educators Workshop and the Southerm Methodist University String Teachers Workshop, "The Art of Teaching Orchestra."

I continue to post on my blog periodically throughout the year.  You can find it at Thoughts of a String Educator.   You can also follow me as Orchestraguy on Twitter.

Believer fans, contnue to watch for new music!  I just finished tracking for an orchestral version of one of the new tunes! 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 was honored to spend some time discussing my work with Believer on the Rockstar Violinist Podcast recently.  It was fun to go back and re-live some of the events of the early Believer days!

I am now booking appearances into 2019 and  I have recently added several new dates to my "Appearances" page. 

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

All my best!
