Muzukidz – changing lives through music

Muzukidz was founded in Cape Town, South Africa in January 2015. Since then the organisation has developed a platform where youngsters and families from all cultural and economic backgrounds can learn, play together and interact.

To date, more than 350 primary school learners have been introduced to the opportunity to receive free violin tuition on an ongoing basis. 

In addition to regular radio and television appearances, many of them already enjoy performing at public events, concerts and festivals in and around Cape Town.

Get Involved

Inspired? So are we!

There are many ways of becoming part of the Muzukidz dream.  

Corporate sponsorship, private donations and fundraising projects are a few options.  You may have a useful service to offer, or an unused violin to donate.  

We would love to hear from you!

Donate a violin

Ever wondered what to do with your child’s beginner violin(s) once he / she is ready to move on? Or do you just happen to have an old child-sized violin lying around, or do you know of someone who does?

Your unused violin is a treasure for a potential Muzukid. Donating a violin can change the course of someone’s future. Please consider passing on the gift of music.
