Under the Arts Education Programmes by National Arts Council, we have run 5 endorsed programmes for students in primary, secondary and tertiary levels. These programmes included a mix of workshops and performance-lectures. We have also run customised programmes tailored to the needs of school curricula, such as specialised workshops for O- and A-Level music elective students.
In 2017, the academy partnered Nanyang Technological University’s Confucius Institute to launch the Chinese Music Instrumental Grading Examinations, which fills a void for certifications in the industry. The examinations are similar to the ABRSM system, whereby examinees can achieve Grades 1 to 8 and a Certificate in Professional Performance. Our first year saw over 1,500 candidates taking the exams.
In 2018, the academy started an exchanges division to facilitate exchanges between our musicians and instructors and the underserved communities through the In-School Programmes for Targeted Students. The academy also helps young talents in need of financial assistance to pursue Chinese music learning through the Mapletree-TENG Academy Scholarship.
Chinese Music Instrumental Grading Examinations for 16 instruments in the Chinese orchestra.
Scholarships for young talents in need of financial assistance to pursue Chinese music learning.
Chinese music programmes for at-risk youths and individuals with special needs.
