Slowly, but steadily

Update: May 2013

As it is, we are moving slowly, but steadily towards the end of our current academic year, we still have about a month to go.

So, what’s it been like in numbers? Or: what has your support enabled us to do?

100 students were given full and partial scholarships based on their families’ socio economic situation and their musical development, 10 of them from the AACT students of 2012. .

75,000 ILS (around 20,800 US$) have been raised from various sources to enable these children to learn music and express their creativity.

22 students take part in the creative learning groups with Ashton Mills and the Clamour Sound Craft – and another 120 (at least) are still to participate over June/ July.

About 2200 students watched our performances “Beethoven at Beit Almusica” introducing elementary school children to classical music which is running as part of the cultural program by the Ministry of Education; and our latest performance “Musiqana” (‘our music in Arabic ’) on styles and history of Arabic music.

A lot of time and efforts have been put forward to promote and upgrade our scholarship program and the instruments’ scholarship for students – as many students are not able to purchase good quality instruments for themselves. All these efforts are starting to show first fruits, and we look forward to giving more children the opportunity to develop their creative talents at Beit Almusica.

Regardless of whether you choose to continue supporting the AACT project with time, money, or good will, we are determined to continue this important work in 2013/2014 and beyond and to be great partners with you and responsible and effective stewards of your hope, time and resources.

Please tell five of your friends about this project, post it on your face book and tell your family and friends about it. Even the smallest support from you can make a huge difference in the lives of these children. 

Thank you!
