The MUSON School of Music was established in 1989 to offer basic music training for children and adults interested in learning how to sing or play any musical instrument. In 2002 the School received the Nigerian Federal Government’s accreditation to award Diplomas in Music which can be equated with those awarded by the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music in the United Kingdom. This led to the setting up of the two-year MUSON Diploma School in 2006.
♪ All the students admitted to the Diploma course receive MTNF Scholarships.
♪ It has graduated over 300 students since 2008.
♪ Over 3000 students have attended the School’s Basic Programme since 1989.
♪ The Diploma School’s alumni is noted for their outstanding musicianship and have excelled in their chosen careers. Those admitted for further studies in Nigeria, South Africa, Europe and America universities have distinguished themselves in their studies.
