The Hout Bay Music Project (HBMP) is a non-profit organization that was founded by Leanne Dolman in 2003, with the vision to empower disadvantaged children through music. The project enables children to come together and experience the joy and therapy that music brings, teaching the necessary skills and related disciplines to over 80 children from the Hangberg and Imizamo Yethu communities. Based in an informal timber structure at the Hout Bay Community Cultural center, weekday afternoons, children get taught the violin, cello, double bass, voice, dance, drumming, marimbas, electric violin, musical theory, and life orientation. Here, indigenous music combines innovatively with classical music and traditional dance. HBMP provides a safe, fun, and creative platform for music discovery, artistic expression, and life skills. The project continuously strives to achieve the highest standards in teaching and performing as they take to national and international stages and contributes to meaningful community development in Hout Bay. Aiming to extend its network throughout the Western Cape, the HBMP has a bright future ahead.
