The South African Music Education Trust (SAMET) was formed in 1994 by a 
group of Trustees representing diverse sectors of the musical world, in
 conjunction with commerce and education.

SAMET is a facilitating body, intent on bringing musical education and 
opportunity to the broader community. In most instances, these
 communities have never been exposed to any form of music education.

The Trust’s main objective is the training and development of musicians
 through music literacy programmes which leads to the performance of 
indigenous, jazz, orchestral and popular music on a variety of instruments.

This type of tuition is aimed at benefiting the whole child, developing their
 co-ordination and communication skills and providing them with the 
necessary foundation to succeed in anything they want to do.
