We are currently seeking university partners to help us gain traction with music students.
University volunteer groups will have an incredible opportunity to teach music in a practical international setting, an excellent experience for the budding musician.
The Living Music Foundation team will work closely with your faculty and students, to create a program that creates lasting value for both the communities we work with and your volunteer group.
During a volunteer program with us, volunteers can expect to spend 5 days a week teaching music lessons to vulnerable communities we work with, including:
- Local primary and secondary schools, and institutions (such as universities, technical colleges)
- Children’s homes and development centers (such as orphanages, compassion centers, etc.)
- Religious communities
During weekends we would be glad to help you arrange excursions to see more of our wonderful country, or you are welcome to join us as we continue with activities and perform at weddings and other functions in the local area.
There is so much to see in Uganda, Pearl of Africa, so we know you will always find activities.

about The Living music foundation
The Living Music Foundation provides music lessons and training to children and communities who do not currently have access to resources, lessons, or instruments.
Performing music is a transformative skill. It helps develop self-esteem, provides purpose, and spreads happiness in the community. Music can also create economic benefits for the musician.
The volunteer program helps LMF expand our reach to help more communities, encourage confidence in the students, and create cross-cultural exchanges through the universal language of music.
Living Music Foundation was founded in early 2018 in Mbarara, which is located in Western Uganda. Since then, we have established ourselves as a reputable local community organization and have gained recognition locally for our efforts.
As the name suggests, our programs focus on music education, empowerment, and community development. We conduct regular community outreach programs at schools, women’s shelters, orphanages, etc. to bring the healing power of music to vulnerable communities and also inspire youth to pursue their passion for music. In addition, we put on performances locally and offer private lessons to raise funds to offer free music lessons and trainings to local students.
