We are MICM

The Morris Isaacson Centre for Music (MICM) is an independent music centre located on the premises of one of the most celebrated schools in the modern history of South Africa, the Morris Isaacson Secondary School in Soweto. The high school was founded in 1956 and played a leading role at the start of the Soweto student Uprising in 1976.

In honour of the historical context of Morris Isaacson and the June 16 Soweto uprising, the purpose-built music centre was established in the heart of Soweto in 2009. The Centre was established by Cape Gate and Music is a Great Investment (MIAGI).

MICM uses music education as a tool to drive human development through our Early Childhood Development programme, our One On One teaching and Ensemble Lessons. The programme currently benefits more than 326 children in Soweto.
