The vocal/voice trainers at ESOM have devoted a great deal of time and effort to mastering and perfecting these techniques, with the sole goal of producing other singers with the same abilities as they have. In order to do this, students are subjected to a range of exercises during voice training that bring out the best in their singing. This is accomplished through theoretical and practical sessions at the school.

Genuineness and originality are two other qualities that are highly regarded and praised. In our vocal students(voice training), one of the most distinguishing characteristics is the possession of a distinct yet pleasant vocal tone. This is one of the important reasons that has enabled them to stand out from the crowd.

The vocalist is a tremendous musical leader, and we know this. As a musical instrument, voice is one of the most versatile and expressive, regardless of genre. If you want to make a career out of singing, you should enroll in a school of music that provides classes in a variety of genres.

“We strive to cultivate and maintain an inclusive environment at Esom School that actively affirms and is respectful of the identities of all people, regardless of gender, ability, ethnicity, sexual orientation, socioeconomic background, or ideological perspective – and one in which self-reflection, honesty, and accountability are practiced and modeled.”

— Agatha Nansubuga, Academic Registrar, Esom School of Music

Individuals who have the ability to command the attention of their listeners, deliver their messages clearly, and influence and inspire others who hear them are of vital importance in the field of vocal/voice training. A similar amount of study and practice is required to master the skills of voice training as it is for any other musical instrument. However, the most important thing a vocalist can do is learn the proper skills that will not in any way harm his or her vocal cords. Thus, professional voice training is extremely beneficial in this situation.

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.

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.
