“Little Musicians” Programme
YEAR
2018

The “Little Musicians” programme was designed in 2013 by the Athens Conservatory in collaboration with the Latsis Foundation, which fully funded its first 3 years of operation. The Foundation continues to support the programme, the aim of which is to enhance music education in Greece by granting scholarships for musical studies to children whose families are unable to cover the cost of tuition.

The “Little Musicians” programme is aimed at children ages 6 to 13 and takes into account, among other things, the inclination of candidates towards music and their financial status in order to select participants and thus grant scholarships. The little scholars are selected after auditions by experienced music educators in the Athens Conservatory. The training includes lessons of theory and musical instruments as well as participation in musical ensembles and the Little Musicians choir.

The “Little Musicians” are progressing, standing out for their high level of musical studies, continuing to distinguish themselves in domestic and international competitions and participating in noteworthy professional music events. Indicatively, during 2018, the Little Musicians choir took part in concerts at venues such as the Presidential Palace and the Megaron Athens Concert Hall.

  • During the 2017 – 2018 school year, 28 students participated in the programme.
  • Distribution of scholars: 11 children on piano, 5 children on violin, 1 child on violoncello, 5 children on flute, 1 child on clarinet, 3 children on guitar, 1 child on trombone and 1 child on percussion.
