Covid update: We are offering some lessons on-site in limited numbers, by appointment. Email admin@myorch.org for more information. Masks and temperature checks will be required. We care very much about the safety of our students and teachers!

We are retooling our programming to fit the needs of our new era. We will still be offering some group lessons, but will be focusing on private, mostly virtual instruction in orchestral instruments, as well as voice, guitar, recorder, ukulele and art.


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.

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.
