About us

Musicians for a better Life is a non-profit association based in Munich engaged in implementing music projects with children and teenagers in social hotspots in various countries. Founded in 2018, we’ve initiated projects in Tanzania, Romania and Germany. The common language of music unites people of different ethnical and social backgrounds. Our aim is to build local structures and networks of musicians from all over the world and establish working with music as a sustainable basis for development work.


Children and young people who make music are positively reinforced and learn to trust in their abilities. They are proud to show these abilities when taking part in artistic projects, are strengthened in their self-esteem and learn a sense of responsibility. Music provides them with a path to a self-determined life.
