Music School BFT

Music School Kigali

The Music School Kigali was founded in early March 2019 through the collaboration of Best Future from Today (BFT) and Music Road Rwanda. It is open to children, teenagers and adults. The lessons are free for the students. Music School Kigali is located in Gikondo / Kigali.

At the Music School Kigali only local teachers are teaching. They offer weekly instrumental lessons and music theory courses as individual or group lessons. The lessons take place on the one hand in the localities of BFT and on the other hand in parishes and primary schools in the surrounding city districts of Kigali.

The teachers are paid by Music Road Rwanda and stay as well in contact with the respective team members of Music Road Rwanda from whom they are also advised. In addition they receive regular lessons on their instrument via Skype.

The following subjects are currently available:

  • Guitar
  • Piano
  • Singing
  • Violin
  • Music Theory
  • Choir

The Music School currently counts around 350 students who receive regular instrumental or music theory lessons.

In Rwanda, there was still no classical chamber music concert cultur in public. In cooperation with the Goethe-Institute in Kigali, we gave two public concerts, both of which were enthusiastically received. One performance took place in the Hotel Serena, the other in the Goethe-Institute’s own auditorium. We plan to continue our cooperation with the Goethe-Institute to give further performances.
