Sadly the underprivileged high schools in Hout Bay do not offer music as a matric subject and gifted individuals, who show a good aptitude for music and a passion for pursuing music as a career, are left unqualified for auditions after matric. For pupils interested in tertiary education studies, KMA provides focused training and qualifications until they are ready. KMA has successfully entered 3 of its senior pupils into the UCT Jazz Degree programme. This covers basic music education such as harmony, theory, music history, technical instrumental understanding and Aural skills training. KMA is available them for additional resources, tutorship or financial help. Bridging that gap for our young adults is the goal of this programme.
