Located in Nyali Mombasa, it is one of the recognized examination centers in Mombasa by the Associated Board for the Royal Schools of Music(ABRSM).

We arrange concerts for individual musicians & artist willing to make a positive impact with other citizens around the world. This include those who want to give masterclass performances, bands and choral groups.

We would like to host any groups looking for a meaningful trip to embark on a month-long tour where they will engage with international audiences through public concerts, interactive performances with local musicians, lectures and demonstrations, workshops, jam sessions, and media interviews!
