Short description: The first Playing for Change Foundation music school, which was located in the South African township of Gugulethu, is taking on new life. We are proud of the legacy of the Ntonga Music School and excited for its evolution to serve even more students. Thanks to the support of long-time Playing For Change Band members, we are expanding our programmatic efforts in the community.
The Imvula Music Program has been established and provides music education to children in different schools across the township: marimba, dance, saxophone among other disciplines are part of the program.

The program brings music education into the lives of even more children and a more diverse group of children, and provides a larger, more efficient space for classes. The program is being led by six talented teachers, including former Ntonga teacher, John Ntshibilikwana. Students are learning guitar, vocals, drums, saxophone and keyboard/piano as well as dance and marimba.
