The Adisadel 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:

  1. Instruments and accessories purchases, upgrades and maintenance

  2. Scholarships for promising students in music

  3. Providing a motivating stipend to the music teachers

  4. Assisting students to write the Royal School of Music examinations
