A special note to our supporters: During the 2012-2013 school years, our program(s) will be expanding. We are contracting an experienced piano instructor, a guitar instructor, and a drumming instructor for a wellness program to enhance the curriculum we began this summer. We will also engage collaborating musicians for performances, workshops, and some rehearsals. These enhancements will be the foundation for a vibrant season of our student's performing arts programs. We welcome your sponsorship of our 2012-2013 performing arts program(s) with your generous donation(s). You can make your donations thru the Akins-Bell Foundation. Inc. website: or by mail to:
