DONATE AN INSTRUMENT
AMP is always in need of new or second-hand musical instruments for its learners. Instruments that are donated to the programme belong to the programme itself, but are allocated to particular learners for the duration of the learners’ time in the programme. Learners in the programme are able to keep their instruments at home so that they can practise on them any time. Instruments currently taught at AMP include: voice, marimba, trumpet, trombone, alto and tenor saxophone, cello, violin, drum kit, piano/keyboard, flute, clarinet, bass guitar, guitar, pennywhistle. If you are interested in donating a second-hand instrument to AMP or in sponsoring the purchase of an instrument, you can contact us to make arrangements.
