The Annapolis Model:

The Annapolis Symphony Academy is committed to cultural and economic diversity in its student body. About half of all Academy students are of African-American or Latino background, and about half are not. Likewise, about half of all students, regardless of cultural background, who meet the family income criteria receive need-based full-tuition scholarships, while about half pay the full tuition rate.

A Message from Netanel Draiblate

Founder & Director, Annapolis Symphony Academy

Concertmaster, Annapolis Symphony Orchestra 

   Music has the power to change lives. It is soulful, invigorating, challenging, emotionally charged and immensely rewarding. It affects us all every day in virtually all situations we find ourselves in.

   Numerous scientific studies have proven the benefits of musical education from an early age. These studies have pointed out benefits such as improved cognitive function, healthy social-emotional development and academic success as well as lower risk for certain illnesses. It is no coincidence that some of the world’s greatest minds such as Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Alexander Graham-Bell and Neil Armstrong (just to name a few) were musically educated.
