Scrollworks’ mission, as a non-profit organization, is to offer quality music education for children in the local community regardless of their ability to pay, with a focus on minorities and the under-served areas of Greater Birmingham. We fulfill this mission by providing a truly unique learning environment wherein the student guides the teacher to their greatest area of interest and in turn the teacher adapts to each individual child’s learning style.

Modeling itself after Venezuela’s El Sistema, Scrollworks is an atypical community music school. Our aim is to provide intensive music instruction to disadvantaged children in their neighborhood, children who otherwise would not have access to quality instruction. Our purpose is to awaken, nurture and develop a passion for music in everyone, creating opportunities to explore and cultivate their talents in order that they become active contributors to Birmingham’s rich and diverse culture.

Staffed by accomplished musicians with real-world experience, our comprehensive and progressive music education program encompasses all genres of music from classical to present day musical styles, including jazz, rock, hip-hop, country, world music and more.

Instruction will be offered for any instrument, as well as voice, music theory, history, composition, songwriting, technology, recording and production. Lessons will be provided in both group and one-on-one settings, with ensembles ranging from small to large, traditional to experimental, demonstrating our belief that the person who plays in an ensemble begins to live the experience of community.

Our goal is to see that certain look in each student’s eye that can’t be described or measured: a spark of insight, a twinkle of engagement, pure joy.
