Music School Kigali

Music School Kigali was established in early March 2019 in collaboration with the Presbyterian Church (Eglise Presbytérienne au Rwanda, EPR) and Music Road Rwanda. It is open to children, teenagers and young adults. Classes are free of charge for students from low-income families.

At Music School Kigali, only local teachers teach, offering weekly instrumental lessons and music theory courses as individual or group lessons. The lessons take place in the premises of the EPR.

The teachers are paid by Music Road Rwanda and are also in touch with the respective team members of Music Road Rwanda, who advise them. In addition, they receive regular instrumental lessons on their instrument via Zoom from the respective team members.

The following courses are currently on offer

  • Guitar
  • Piano
  • Singing
  • Violin
  • Musictheory
  • Choir

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.
