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

Jazz Combo

Percussion Ensemble

Recorder Ensemble

Youth Choir 

Children's Choir (no audition required)
