Mount Kenya Academy’s music program is one of the most diverse and well-developed in Kenya. Most students participate in weekly classroom music lessons, which cover singing, note-reading, music history, and composition. Students also have the opportunity to take private lessons with professional musicians in piano, guitar, violin, viola, or cello. Those who excel with their instrument earn an international certificate from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) – UK. In addition, students may join the MKA Choir or MKA Orchestra. Both ensembles perform regularly and give students a unique sense of accomplishment.
