Ray Scro

Ray Scro has performed, studied and taught music for nearly fifty years in his home of Staten Island and throughout New York City. At age seven Scro began playing clarinet, which continues to share space on his bandstand next to tenor and soprano saxophones. Ray studied music at Brooklyn College in the early seventies, and received private instruction under saxophonist and guru Lee Konitz. He has played with Jimmy Knepper, Chuck Wayne, Charlie Persip, Chico Hamilton and many others.

After twenty years as a professional musician, Scro began a second career as music educator. He taught music in a Brooklyn middle school for three years before joining the music department at Curtis High School in Staten Island. Scro served as head of the Performing Arts Department for six years and has served as band director to this day.

Scro’s work as an educator has been acknowledged with an International Association of Jazz Educators scholarship, as well as an Arts Educator's award from the Council of Arts and Humanities of Staten Island. ...
