The universal language of music is the platform from which we proudly integrate our diverse community and the voice we give to youth at risk in Hout Bay. KMA offers the gift of music as a stepping stone in the lives of children from Imizamu Yethu informal settlement and the Hangberg fishing village. As the only fully fledged music school in Hout Bay, families from the greater Hout Bay 'valley' also enjoy the extensive musical services we offer.
