Endowment Fund for Music Education
The 1960s were the golden years of music at Adisadel. Adisadel was
the first school in Ghana to start a jazz band – the famous “Adisadel Jazz
Band”. Other schools that tried to get into bands created pop bands, of
which Adisadel had many in addition to the jazz band. The numerous Adisadel pop
groups included the Thunderbirds, Ringos, Avalanches,
the Soundcasters, Reavers 5 etc. The wave of school bands lasted into the
70s and 80s and started fading away because of the rapidly declining political
and economic environment which affected everything else in Ghana.
The Adisadel Endowment Fund for Music Education has been created to permanently
support music education at Adisadel College. Contributions into the fund is
invested with the investment returns made available annually for music education
activities. Some of the activities supported by the fund are:
Instruments and accessories purchases, upgrades and maintenance
Scholarships for promising students in music
Providing a motivating stipend to the music teachers
Assisting students to write the Royal School of Music examinations
