SASMT Transformation Committee Report – April 2022

Stems from motion adopted at the National SASMT Conference (24/04/2021)

The motion was in response to concerns regarding the transformation of SASMT membership expressed by the Durban and Ekurhuleni Centres.

Proposed that

“Nationally and in each regional centre, a task team, committee or other structure be convened with a mandate to investigate and report back on the following:

  • (a) Whether a more direct approach should be made to the heads of schools, arts and music centres, music educators and teachers in order to establish what their expectations and needs are;
  • (b) The reasons why music teachers at schools in previously disadvantaged communities do not join the SASMT;
  • (c) The reasons why music teachers, especially those in previously disadvantaged communities, who join the SASMT, frequently allow their membership to lapse.”
