I am by the name of Basiima Edward Collins and would like to share a few things I know in Esom School Of Music. I am a term one student but what I have had in this wonderful school is mind blowing because I am learning so fast more than I was before joining Esom School Of Music. The courses I offered are; Audio production and Piano, this is giving me an easy and quicker way to make beats since my desire is to become a best producer in the world and trust me, I am achieving that as I am talking. There are also a variety of other courses you can take e.g Video production, sound engineering, vocal training, saxophone playing, Violin, Guitars (acoustic, solo and bass) Drums, to mention but a few. So if anyone out there is looking for a best music school, simply come to Esom School Of Music because all your music desire will be fully achieved. Thank you and may God bless you.

Am a student in a video editing class at Esom School of Music and this is my first term there. We've so far covered a few lessons because the term has just started but as far as I had known about video editing, my skills have developed so fast and am grateful for that. Can't wait to graduate 😁👍👍

It's a good school with brilliant teachers. However, most of the active teaching focuses on the practical side of music, while the theory side of things is largely left to the student as self-study. A structure for the teaching, assessment and feedback regarding music theory as its own subject should be developed and then the school will really shine and produce knowledgeable musicians with a true mastery of their art. The location is a bit inconvenient, being in the middle of town, but the classes are worth the journey. In general, yes to Esom.
