TWIGS Auditions, Instrumental Music

Instrumental music auditions will take place April 19-25. TWIGS, To Work In Gaining Skills, is a free after-school arts program for Baltimore City residents only.

Improve on the instrument you now play. On Saturdays you will participate in band, orchestra, or a group class; have a private lesson on your instrument; and take a musicianship class. We offer lessons in all orchestra and band instruments, i.e., string, woodwind, brass, percussion, as well as piano, guitar, and harp.

Please use the Madison Street entrance for instrumental auditions.

"I was an inner-city kid, and the school exposed me for the first time to a number of cultures. That helped to break down biases. From 8 to 4, it was our own little utopia."
