Dear Music Lovers,

It is a proven fact that Music brings people together and the Magic Bond stays forever. 

The vision of Music Mauritius Foundation (MMF) is to create the possibility for deprived children to learn music and an instrument and to play in various types of ensembles. The overall goals are;

1. to foster, by way of music, a positive personal development of struggling children and 

2. to enable widespread, high quality and sustainable music tuition in Mauritius. 

MMF therewith aims at fighting poverty, unemployment and drug abuse and towards contributing to a flowering and rich music culture in Mauritius.

Our mission is to convey music skills with special pedagogical focus by an internationally supported “three-point programme”: MENTOR teach TEACHERS teach CHILDREN. This allows high standard educational skills be conveyed in the most effective way. The programme relies both on digital and physical tuition and shall meet the standards of ABRSM (Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music).

Music Mentors will be from Mauritius and Overseas- Germany initially.

Who are we? 

MMF is a team of Mauritian and German origins, musicians and music lovers who joined hands to put up this project led by Antoine GoorshayeSimone StrohmeierShyam RoyMartin HollmannRechad Chummun, Paul Olsen & others.   

We want to bring back musical education to Mauritius in a systematic way and free of charge for children and youth in deprived areas. 
 

How do we use the Funds 

Most of the funds will be used for payment of salaries for Mentors and Teachers which will grow with time. Some funds will be used for purchase of instruments. Annual costs estimated for 2022  will conservatively be around Rs1,5M. 

Short Term Goals 

We need to build up MMF and its infrastructure, set up the resources in terms of Music Mentors and Music Teachers and set up schools of music across the island 

Long Term Goals 

Have around 3000 young people with knowledge of music and learning music by 2023 

and 

One day, we hope to have a National  Youth Orchestra in Mauritius.
