• Meet the board of directors

Our board of directors

In October 2013, Kidenza became a CIC – Community Interest Company which is a type of Social Enterprise.

It was an exciting time as it was our pledge to the world that we are serious about what we do and we intend to change the world of music education.

Part of the criteria of becoming a CIC was to have a board of directors – people who will be the wheels to carry Kidenza forward. We are delighted to be working with such talented and committed people.
