Ad Libitum Music Academy


AD LIBITUM strives to broaden lives, develop minds and build character
through music education to all, regardless of age, gender, race or socioeconomic background.
To serve the Langberg District and to encourage kids to do music as an extra subject.


We create a platform where young kids can have the opportunity to perform
as soloist and in groups and give them an option of a career in the music industry.
To provide affordable, professional music tuition to all.
To develop young students and train them as tutors.
We aim to empower children with music talent to have a future career in the music industry.


As a young boy, growing up in Robertson, Marvin Booysen (founder and director) had the privilege of doing music as a subject at one of the high schools in Robertson. After being given the opportunity to take part in the South Africa Youth Orchestra course in 1999, he realized what our rural kids are missing.

In Robertson we have numerous music organizations, but none gives the youth the opportunity to either consider a career in music, further their studies in music, or explore the music industry.

In 2012 the Ad Libitum Academy of Music opened its doors. Shortly after opening, the academy moved from the Mr Booysen’s home to 51 Barry Street, where they occupied a garage, which was renovated into two rooms used as both teaching and office space.

In April 2016 the academy expanded in such a way that it became necessary to move to the old Voortrekker building in Dirkie Uys Street.

Since the academy started in January 2012, numerous children’s lives have been touched and improved by the power of music.

We strive to continue to make a difference in the lives of young adults.
