The first annual General Assembly meeting, as it was called, was held in October 1922. The main engine of the Society was Harry. Garvin, a renowned teacher and musician all around Johannesburg. Garvin was previously the founder of the South African Musicians’ Union and was the organisation’s president during his lifetime from 1894 to 1907. He was also president of the South African Music Teachers Association from its inception until the end of 1931.
