Past Sponsors of TEDxCapeTown

It all began when one motivated individual responded to the absence of music development opportunities for disadvantaged children. Since our inception in 2003 we continue to help children come together everyday to experience the joy of music. 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; Identify children with a special aptitude for music as young as the nursery school age group; Foster 'multipliers' – 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.
