Music Academy of Gauteng


The Music Academy of Gauteng was established by trumpeter Johnny Mekoa to nurture and develop young musical talent. Through the years it has hosted numerous overseas jazz Professors who conducted workshops and master-classes to students. Their response to the levels of talent shown by students has been full of praise.

The Music Academy of Gauteng is one of the few remaining community-based music education (NGO) schools. It is providing a much-needed arts education for youth coming from disadvantaged families and informal settlements. The school has a team of dedicated musicians who strive at all times to teach and inspire musically talented youth. The school is grateful for the continuing support it receives from government, the corporate sector and individuals both locally and overseas.
