The South African music industry has few professional standards. Many in the industry rely on the goodwill of strangers without any support structures and limited legal resources. This results in the industry being exploited by opportunists who undermine the creative and production efforts of serious professionals. This problem effects all areas of the industry creating an environment of mistrust which impacts negatively on all our sales, services and general desirability.

As musical professionals we are working towards creating a collective body of musical fellows to join forces, share resources and cooperate in an effort to promote a fairer industry. Whether this is in the forming of a union, an association, or a guild, our key objectives will be to encourage fair play and offer a level of professional standards that encourage both decent pay and satisfied customers.

Our first step is to find out more about our associates, where they come from, and what they feel they need. To do this we have put together a survey which we would like to ask you to complete. The results of this survey will contribute towards a Panel Discussion we will be holding in Johannesburg on 15 December. Hosted by ‘Cellist Caleb Jones you can find the survey at For more visit
