Tshwane School Of Music
The Tshwane School of Music (TSOM) is a social enterprise built on the pillars of Music for Life, Music for Learning and Music for Leisure. TSOM provides quality, accredited music education to mosty primary school children, along with a variety of short courses for the professional and semi professional community musician. The school serves approximately 150 - 200 students (mostly primary school age) in individual classes. We provide rehearsal space and instruments on which the children can learn and practice, as many do not have access to such facilities at home. Classes take place in the afternoons and are offered for beginner, intermediate and advanced students. In Jan 2019, TSOM became the first township based institution in Africa to offer an extended BMUS degree course in Jazz and contemporary music in partnership with the University of Pretoria. (UP) Of the 6 students who entered the degree course, all of them passed to continue with their 2nd year of the program.
