MITCHELL'S PLAIN MUSIC ACADEMY HISTORY
Mitchell’s Plain Music Academy is a part-time music programme that was established in 2014 and has been providing affordable, yet quality and professional tuition ever since. Our programme accommodates beginners, intermediate and advanced musicians. We have employed qualified and skilled teachers from UCT and Stellenbosch University who’s not only brilliant teachers but also professional musicians and artists to work with our students and take them to the next level.
Welcome from our Principal
Welcome to the Mitchell's Plain Music Academy Website. What started out as informal lessons in a living room back in 2013, with one student, has become home to at least 170 students in 2019. Mitchell’s Plain, a previously disadvantaged community thrives with musical talent and self taught musicians but not enough facilities to cultivate and nurture these talents and take it to the next level. In 2014, Mitchell’s Plain Music Academy opened its doors for less fortunate students in Mitchell’s Plain with the aim to train, educate and empower those that do not have the means to pay for training at established institutions. Our mission remains “to provide high quality yet affordable music tuition” to all our students.
Mitchell’s Plain Music Academy knows how to develop musicians by incorporating not only the art of playing your desired instrument, but what it means to be a musician from a business perspective.
Our students will achieve the next level of musical proficiency through our Performance-Based curriculum and includes individual one on one lessons, graded exams via Trinity College London and group rehearsals for our various productions and workshops throughout the year. Our aim is to get our students trained and skilled for on-stage performances at real live music shows.
Thank you for taking out the time to visit our website we hope to see you in the near future, be it as a student or supporter of our yearly music productions.
