Summer Lessons

For Summer 2024 we are offering a 'short' semester of 6 private lessons on Saturday mornings between 9 am and 12 pm.  We sill start on June 8 with 3 lessons in June and 3 in July.  Please check the dates on our calendar below.

Interior renovations to St. Paul UMC are beginning this month. While the work will take place on weekdays and should minimally impact our smaller teaching spaces, we've opted to minimize our footprint with the reduced teaching schedule.

Click on the Summer 2024 tab above  for details about our offerings. The link to the registration form will be at the bottom of the page.

We're celebrating our 18th year of music ensembles and instruction! We continue to serve every interested child, age 6 to 18, including those with disabilities.

If you believe, as we do, that learning to play an instrument can positively impact a child, please consider supporting Scrollworks with a monetary donation.

Thank you!!

As our student enrollment grew, so did our vision. After learning their basics on an instrument, many Scrollworks students join our ensembles. 

We offer several performing ensembles for both new and returning students. Certain prerequisite skills must be demonstrated and a placement audition may be required. 

Our ensembles:

Metropolitan Youth Orchestra

Chamber Winds

Chamber Strings
