Instruments for Talin Music School


The Talin Music School is located in the Aragatsotn Region of Armenia. Talin is considered one of the oldest residential areas of the region and has a population of about 5,400 people. The school is housed in space provided by the town. The Talin Music School provides music classes to more than 110 children annually and employs 15 teachers. Among the lessons provided are classes in piano, duduk, kanon, violin, vocal and music theory. The school receives support from the local government for administrative expenses and the students pay a modest monthly fee to attend classes. The support from the local government and the fees paid by students are not enough to allow the school to replace needed musical instruments.

Two months to purchase and deliver instruments

Thank you to all our donors, we have met our fundraising goal.

The Need
Children from Armenia’s smaller towns suffer from the lack of suitable facilities. The promotion of a child’s education and preservation of our rich culture depend on quality educational institutions. The Talin Music School is working to promote education, culture and the arts for the children in Talin, Armenia. In order to fulfill this goal the school is in need of new and functioning instruments.
Short Term Impact
The children at the Talin Music School will be able to perform at a higher level due to the brand new instruments. The local economy will benefit from the local purchase of several different musical instruments, their delivery and tuning.
Long Term Impact
The 110 students currently at the school and future students will benefit from music instruction on proper musical instruments.
Sponsors Benefits
Your donation to sponsor the Instruments for Talin Music School will be recognized in their printed materials and sponsor plaques will be placed on instruments if appropriate. Additionally, your name will be listed as a sponsor on the Paros Foundation website and in appropriate press related to this important project. The Paros Foundation will happily arrange a visit to the Talin Music School when you are in Armenia.
