Covid update: We have had a successful and productive semester of mostly online lessons.

We will continue our virtual spring semester much as it was in the fall, but we hope to return to in-person ensemble work by late spring.

We are currently offering private, in-person lessons for some beginner students. These special lessons will be with an experienced teacher, wearing masks and using CDC recommended safety protocols. Thank you for helping us all stay safe!

Thanks in part to a grant from the Alabama State Council on the Arts, we are offering help to our families, lending technological support and helping to procure devices, to make online lessons possible and more enjoyable.

Please do not hesitate to contact us if you have a need.

Registration for the Scrollworks Spring Semester is closed.

Scrollworks is offering "pay what you can" lessons for Spring 2021!

(Covid Update: We hope to return to some in-person ensemble rehearsals in late-Spring! These ensembles will grow out of current lessons and classes and will not require an audition during these strange times.)

As our children grew, so did our vision. After learning their basics, many Scrollworks students graduate to performing ensembles.

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

Our ensembles:

Magic City Youth Orchestra

Metropolitan Youth Orchestra

Chamber Winds

Chamber Strings

After Hours Orchestra

Percussion Ensemble

Recorder Ensemble

Youth Choir

Children's Choir (no audition required)

On June 4, the Alabama State Council on the Arts awarded $517,900 in CARES funding at its quarterly meeting in Montgomery to aid the arts industry recovery effort in Alabama. Scrollworks was chosen as one of the beneficiaries of this emergency grant.

Carnegie Hall’s Weill Music Institute (WMI) supports PlayUSA, a program that supports a wide range of instrumental music education projects across the United States, all specifically designed to reach low-income and underserved students on a local level.

The VSA Music for Every Student program provides students with disabilities the opportunity to develop their musicianship. The program focuses on hands-on skills associated with instrumental, vocal or choral practice or performance, and/or on music appreciation.
