Currently operating from an informal timber structure in Hout Bay Village we strive to:

  • Consistently achieve teaching and performance standards of the highest level;
  • Secure a dedicated, permanent teaching and performance venue;
  • Become sustainable through ongoing income from the children's performances, the kind support of the general public, and financial commitment from sponsors and donors;
  • Contribute to meaningful community development in Hout Bay and to extend our network throughout the Western Cape;
  • Continue with national and international touring; and
  • Grow the number of performance opportunities;
  • Foster HBMP graduates to take leadership roles within the project;
  • Always provide a safe, fun, creative platform for music discovery, artistic expression, and life skills learning.

With your help we can achieve our vision.

Daily classes cover violin, cello, double bass, marimba, drums, singing, dance, and life skill guidance. We currently provide formal string instrument training for 80 children and are extremely proud of our 100% pass rate. All practical and theory examinations are conducted through the Associated Board of the Royal School of Music and Trinity College in the United Kingdom, the world's top authorities on musical assessment.
