This is the only college counseling service that the student will need. The counselors will help students in choosing schools, preparing application and audition materials, and preparing for standard tests and interviews. We are here every step of the way in the students’ journeys to their dream schools.
5. What social activities does the school offer?
At BEAM, we place a great emphasis on social responsibility. Students will participate in the Wings of Music charity programs regularly. Inspired by the Venezuelan social action music program El Sistema, the founder of our school cooperated with the China Symphony Development Foundation in 2009 to create a music-based charity, the Wings of Music funding project for children. BEAM is committed to supporting the public welfare through music and providing opportunities to our students to volunteer in such activities to instill in them a sense of social responsibility, service attitude, leadership and organization skills that are highly valued in top educational institutions worldwide. Wings of Music will issue recommendation letters to assist participating students in their college applications.
