OUR VISION FOR EDUCATION IS TO ENCOURAGE OPEN-MINDEDNESS AND SELF EXPLORATION THROUGH THE STUDY OF GLOBAL MUSICAL CULTURES.

Everyone is - by definition, unique. It is that uniqueness that Banda Magda wants students of all ages to embrace, while at the same time raising awareness and understanding of how all humans are connected.

Brainstorming games, body percussion and rhythm singing are some of the techniques that Banda Magda employs in order to help create, internalize and perform music. The band’s international background and deep knowledge of diverse music styles and languages, inspire students of any practice to cultivate a curiosity for what’s beyond, leading to sense of belonging in the world as a whole.
