The grant programme Impulse Music Education of the Cultural Participation Fund enables schools to invest in more and better music education.

  • train the people who teach the classes in their capacity to teach music; and
  • work together with musical organisations, such as music schools, orchestra's, brass bands, marching bands or concert venues.

  • Between 100 and 200 students: €15,000-
