Come by and try something new! A trial lesson costs you only Tsh 40.000. If you decide to continue and sign a contract, the trial lesson will be charged as the first regular hour.

Regular Weekly Lessons

Music lessons will be given once a week, but not on public holidays and during school holidays. The minimum contract term is 3 months (12 lessons) but you can also sign a 6 month (24 lessons) or 1 year contract (48 lessons). For the first contract with us we charge a one time administration fee of Tsh. 10,000.

Another possibility for taking lessons the 10 lesson card which offers you a lot more flexibility. The card is valid for 6 months and has to be paid in advance.
