“We must fight for our dreams. If we don’t do this, we stay in the same place.”


Music Beyond is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization that aims to empower people in developing countries through music and engagement, currently in the Democratic Republic of the Congo.

By providing local musicians with the tools they need to grow as performers, mentors, and teachers, Music Beyond fosters an enduring positive impact that extends beyond music into the everyday lives of people.




Works with musicians to expand their artistry and become great leaders

Music Beyond offers private and group workshops for musicians through its Teacher Training Program, as well as solo and ensemble performance opportunities.


Empowers women to find their voices through music

Founded in 2016, Music Beyond’s women’s chamber ensemble Romance de l’OSK provides women with a safe space to express and explore themselves through music.


INSPIRES the next generation

Music Beyond’s founder, internationally acclaimed flutist Kaori Fujii, partners with schools, NGOs, and other organizations to offer consulting that helps them to strengthen their music programs and build new curriculums from the ground up.

We found within ourselves that women too can create something extraordinary.
