About the project

Musical City was an initiative launched by the municipality and the Jerusalem Foundation to restore the place of music in elementary schools after years of government cutbacks.The program offered children aged seven and eight two years of subsidized school-based instruction (the first year in musical concepts, theory and keyboard study and the second year in an instrument of their choice) and provided jobs for new immigrant musicians. A pilot project was undertaken in the Pisgat Ze’ev Elementary School and by 1998, the program had reached 4,000 children in 70 schools.
