Harmony Music Foundation is a registered Non-Profit Organisation. We provide music education to children from disadvantaged communities in Cape Town.
We travel to children’s homes, orphanages and schools. Our music classes primarily focus on Djembe and Ukulele. The classes are facilitated by drum therapist Greg Bridges and ukulele maestro Abraham van den Berg.
We collaborate with other NPO’s for holiday events. First, we identify a community that is in need. Then we find a suitable venue and invite the youth of that area to attend. At our events, we teach them exciting skills such as Djembe, Ukulele, Gymnastics, Poi, Staff and Hula-hooping.
We have developed a teaching method to train talented individuals to realise their teaching potential. Our syllabus is accessible, fun and crosses cultural barriers.

My name is Sebastian Guile, I am the founder of Harmony Music Foundation. I was disabled for two years with a autoimmune disorder called Celiac Disease. During this time, I gained a lot of compassion for human suffering. I decided to combine my skills as a professional music teacher with my new found perspective on life to create a Non-Profit Organisation. My dream was to change the lives of South African children through music. In early 2014, I came up with the idea of Harmony Music Foundation. I formulated a specialised syllabus that teaches basic musical concepts in a fun and engaging manner. I hope to help children develop self-confidence and uplift communities in need.
