The Children's Music Revival Fund is part of the Japan Musical Instruments Association Secretariat, and collects and manages funds for School Music Revival project activities. Donations from Association member companies, corporations and individuals will be used to inspect, repair and maintain school musical equipment (primary activities), purchase or replace irreparable musical instruments, support concerts and other music activities in the earthquake and tsunami areas (secondary activities), and promote project participation by corporations (the Enlightenment Project).
We will inspect, repair and help maintain school musical equipment belonging to preschools and primary, middle, and high schools.
Target Area: Iwate, Miyagi and Fukushima Prefectures (the region corresponding to seismic intensity of 6)
※Approximately 1,800 schools
※We will consider applications from earthquake and tsunami damaged regions outside the targeted survey and inspection area (Iwate, Miyagi, and Fukushima Prefs.), and from schools other than preschcools or primary, middle, and high schools (such as nurseries or various other types of schools) and grant them on a case-by-case basis.
Targeted Musical Instruments and Educational Tools
Local retail associations are leading the damage survey and inspection campaigns, and as soon as we have a reasonable grasp of conditions (presumably by the end of September 2011), we will share that information with the inspection divisions of the manufacturer and wholesaler associations. We will compile an interim report by the end of September 2011 to confirm the state of funds-procurement and repair expenses incurred, and analyze the content and structure of secondary activities.
We will support the purchase and replacement of irreparable musical instruments, and support local concerts and other children's music activities.
1. Support for purchases of instruments beyond repair
Musical instruments and equipment targeted for support by the Children's Music Revival Fund are those handled by the Japan Musical Instruments Association, with the main categories illustrated below.
