AACM Society of Music Patrons

Donor Bill of Rights

As a non-profit organization, we rely on the generosity of donors and friends to stay afloat and continue to offer quality music education and programs that remain affordable and accessible. By supporting our work, you will be associating yourself with the premier teaching institution of North Indian classical music in the world, and helping to extend this wonderful tradition for the enjoyment of all. Read on!

In late 2003, we re-launched our donations program as the AACM Society of Music Patrons, and our mission is this: To promote the preservation, appreciation and propagation of North Indian classical music through quality teaching by resident and visiting faculty, concerts and master classes, accessible multimedia archives and recordings, and family and youth-oriented activities that cultivate the next generation of music lovers.

All donors are automatically inducted into the Society for a period of one year.
