The Yizre'el Gilboa Music Center is the main school for music education in the Gilboa Regional Council and was established 20 years ago (1995) at the initiative of Kibbutz yizre'el.
Since its establishment, the Music center has been training and nurturing generations of musicians, both instrumentalists and vocalists, of all ages.
Special attention has been given to community activities , that transforms the music studies into a means of empowering different populations including Arab-Jewish co-operation, and creating a cultural center that initiates and stages regional cultural events.
Our tasks and goals
to transform every student into a musician in his soul:
the playing, the singing, the ensembles, the music theory and the history of music all combine in the extensive musical activity and in the musical events and concerts of the students and the teachers.
The Music Stream in the Emek Harod (Amal) School:
the Academy constitutes the Music Stream for the high school students, offering them the possibility to study for their matriculation in Music at the highest level (5 points), as well as a recital for the matric exam in different instruments.
The Amadeus Program:
The teachers of the Yizre'el-Gilboa Music Center offer a curriculum for instrumental and choral studies –"Amadeus"- in elementary schools in the area of the Gilboa Regional Council. The Amadeus Program is offered in the course of regular school hours
This program, which was developed by Stas Gavrilov, the founder and Director of the Music Center, has an added value – the enrichment of the cultural atmosphere within the schools (including ceremonies, festivals and special events) and aiding in the reduction of violence, while raising the level of achievement of the program participants.
A Cultural Center in the region:
The Music Center initiates and produces cultural events connected to music which are open to the wider public.
The performing community:
We are presently in the throes of establishing unique combinations of individuals in the region for those interested in developing their musical capabilities via coached ensembles in the Music Academy.
In January 2015 the Music Academy was formally reconstituted as a registered non-profit society.
The society adopts and re-emphasizes the original goals of the Academy
-To promote music as a means of advancement, development and empowering individuals, while promoting the community within which it operates
-To increase the musical and social co-operation between Jews and Arabs living together in the same region
All visitors to this web site are invited to come and enjoy everything that the Academy has to offer, either as pupils, as listening audiences, or as music buffs – enjoying the rich variety of activities which the Yizre'el – Gilboa Music Center has to offer all who cross its threshhold.
The Music Center and the wider community
The Academy is very active in strengthening and empowering the community around it.
Music for every child
The Music center has developed the "Amadeus" program, through which dozens of children receive basic musical education in their classrooms, including the learning of an instrument of their personal choice within the school framework and in regular school hours, with only a small financial participation of the parents.
Children, who would ordinarily not be exposed to the world of music, can play an instrument and participate in ensembles in their schools.
An important by-product of the Amadeus program is the reduction in violence in the schools and a clear and significant rise in academic achievement of the program participants.
The participating schools are:
Musical Co-operation between Jews and Arabs
In the Academy, Jewish and Arab students study together as one.
The cultural co-operation produces an exciting connection, both musical and social , and the comments from parents at the concerts which are held during the study year bear witness to this.
Back to playing
The Academy offers a unique activity, in conjunction with the "Rimon" music school, which enables those who played instruments in the past to return to playing, in an organized framework. The Music center crystallizes the ensembles which are trained by teachers from the school and from "Rimon", and provides for them the necessary infrastructure, instruments and sound equipment which enables them to get back into active playing.
