Ongoing Programs at the Conservatory
Encouraging Musical Education
We, members of the Association for the Advancement of Music and Dance in Akko (an NPO) have set a goal of encouraging musical education in the city, promoting the activities of the conservatory and encouraging young musicians.
Our members operate voluntarily and the donations we raise are used solely for promoting and supporting
music and dance education for talented children as well as children from families in need.
Our Scholarships Program - Each year we raise scholarships for outstanding students and students from disadvantaged families.
The scholarship funds the individual study hours of each child throughout the year.
A full scholarship costs $1,500.
This year we seek to generate $120,000 in scholarship funding, to cover the cost of 120 scholarships.
Musical Instruments - Every year, the conservatory raises a donation to buy quality musical instruments for children and allow every child to play a personal instrument that they may take home to practice.
This year we intend to raise $35,000 to purchase 33 musical instruments.
