What CTMA does
The Cape Town Music Academy (CTMA) primarily focuses on the creation of performance opportunities for South African musicians to help them earn a living through music.
The Cape Town Music Academy (CTMA) seeks to create and facilitate performance, recording and skills development opportunities as well as international performing and educational exchanges for emerging and established musicians and related artists from communities in the Western Cape.
The CTMA believes that Cape Town’s contemporary musicians, emerging and established, should have the opportunity to continuously learn, create, perform and record. They should have the right to international exposure, and have the means to live, work and retire with dignity and recognition. CTMA also believes that local audiences should be created and nurtured, because without an audience there is no artist. Appreciating and enjoying music, is as beneficial as playing it.
The CTMA acts as an enabler, facilitator and initiator of programmes and projects for the promotion of the work of local contemporary musicians and the development of skills and career opportunities in the South African music industry through establishing partnerships with public and private institutions, organisations and companies.
The CTMA believes that for the Cape Town and South African music industry to survive and thrive, it is important to create connections and collaborations between the different role players on the local music scene. Equally important is audience development through outreaches to underserved communities and the creation of performance spaces, music productions and live gigs.
CTMA has been working to create learning experiences, working opportunities and live entertainment since it's inception. Here are some of the achievements in figures, all continuing to increase.
