custom menus in Scholar?

Hi:

here's the production site I'm working on:
http://few.modernmediajapan.com/

I have to ask my developer every time I need to have a page title or order changed, and it gets time-consuming and expensive: being able to use Custom Menus would be much easier because I'll be able to make changes myself. Is there any reason why this tutorial for creating Custom Menus wouldn't work with Scholar?

I don't want to get him started on this and find there's something in the theme that prevents it.

very hopeful,

thanks,

Terri
