I play a small role in Scrollworks by maintaining and repairing the program's stringed instruments, mostly donated, on a volunteer basis. I set up shop at the church where the lessons are held each Saturday. More often than not, kids come down with a small problem identified by the instructors during a lesson. Many times I can fix the problem while the student watches. I treat them as I would any customer, whether or not the student owns the instrument. In addition, they get to see first hand what goes into caring for the instrument.
Later in the spring, a full-length segment featuring the program will air on State of the RE:Union. In the meantime, enjoy this 10 minute segment about some great kids and the dedicated volunteer teachers and parents who participate in this worthwhile project. There is also a link to Scrollworks on my links where donations are accepted online, if you are so moved.
