The Förderverein der Akademie für Tonkunst e. V [Registered Association for the Promotion of the Music Academy] was founded (originally under a different name) in 1982. The association enables the purchase of music and musical instruments, repair and maintenance of instruments, grants for projects, training courses for teaching staff and subsidies for many more purposes which the Academy could not support independently.

The association is financed through voluntary contributions collected after Academy concerts, the sale of drinks and cakes, fundraising activities such as second hand book sales and donations made by individuals associated with the Academy.

Why do we need a promotion association?

The activities of this association provide support for the following purposes:
