DONATE AN INSTRUMENT
Donate a new or second-hand musical instrument to AMP. Donated instruments will belong to the programme itself, but are allocated to particular learners for the duration of their time at AMP. Learners take the instruments home to practice. We are interested in donations of: trumpets, trombones, saxophones (alto, tenor, baritone), tubas, cellos, violins, violas, marimbas, drum kits, pianos, keyboards, flutes, clarinets, bass guitars, guitars (acoustic, electric), pennywhistles, minor percussion. We also use PA equipment (speakers, amplifiers, etc) and are in need of music stands. If you are interested in donating one of these items, you can contact us to make arrangements.
SPONSOR AMP's VOCAL ENSEMBLE
Our ensemble programme has always been at the heart of AMP’s success – it does wonders for musicianship and there is nothing more motivating than playing music as a group. AMP’s vocal ensemble currently has 3 members, all of whom study voice as their main instrument at AMP. Tuition for the ensemble costs R14,000 per annum (R1,167 p/m).
AMP welcomes volunteers in the following capacities, and more: Teaching (music theory/aural, sound technology, instrument lessons, marimba bands); Administration; Marketing and publicity; Fundraising; Career guidance for learners; General assistants on camps / tours; Media support. Contact us for more information.
In an effort to make music studies accessible to youth in all of Makhanda’s historically disadvantaged areas, we provide daily transport for learners whose schools or homes are far from AMP’s centre. Without transport, many learners simply would not be able to attend. It costs R8,360 to cover learner transport for one school term (quarter) (R3800 p/m).
