Were your kids’ music lessons rudely interrupted by this pandemic? Was 2020 the year Junior finally started on violin lessons then Coronavirus happened? No worries, the beat must go on. Nairobi Children’s Orchestra  has made it possible for music teaching to continue when it’s not possible for kids and tutors to meet in person.

With all this free time, it’s vital to keep kids occupied. Music lessons are way better than watching TV all day. Here’s why it’s a great idea for kids to immerse themselves in music and learn how to play an instrument.

  •         Learning an instrument teaches a child how to create, store and retrieve memories more effectively
  •         Musical training helps develop language and reasoning: Children who have early musical training will develop the areas of the brain related to language and reasoning.
  •         It refines discipline and patience-Learning an instrument teaches children about delayed gratification.
  •         Music Lessons offer a forum where kids can learn to accept and give constructive criticism. Turning negative feedback into positive change helps build self-confidence

This orchestra is one of many initiatives aimed at developing ensemble opportunities and experience for young instrumentalists in Kenya.

Music Education Services Kenya Limited has been envisioned as an educational organisation that will develop structure for solid foundations in music performance education in Kenya. 

Its main philosophy is driven by the direct link between collective music performance and social, cultural self awareness, discipline and integrity. Their August trial lessons for Kids aged 4-12 are ongoing and a new term will commence on the 10th of September.

The virtual lessons will be conducted every Thursday at 3PM. They’re charging Ksh 5000 per child for 10 weeks and are offering discounts for siblings/family groups.
