About Tenstrings

Tenstrings Music Institute is the largest music school in Nigeria, with campuses in Ikeja, Lekki/Ajah, Agege, Festac Town, Port Harcourt, and Abuja, with plans to open more campuses in other major towns across the country. Tenstrings has trained over 20,000 students from 21 countries over a period of 15 years.

Tenstrings is duly registered and accredited by the appropriate government agencies in Nigeria and is affiliated with several reputable universities around the world. We are also incorporated in the UK and operating there as “Africa Heritage Academy UK Ltd.”

Our programs cover three specific areas: Music Performance, Music Production, and Music Management. We have over ten different courses in these three key areas spanning different durations and depths. Depending on the amount of time at your disposal and the skill level you want to attain, we have programs ranging from three months to two years in length.

Tenstrings was founded to cater to the needs of young music artists who desire to build careers in contemporary music (Hip-hop, Reggae, R&B, Gospel, Jazz, Rock, Highlife, Afrobeat, etc.) by equipping them with all-encompassing music and business training. This is the reason the institute adopts what is called a dynamic curriculum (we are constantly adjusting our course contents and delivery to align with global trends in the contemporary music business).

At Tenstrings, our students stand a high chance of succeeding in their careers because we match training with opportunities. We work hard to give our students the experience and platform that emulate the real world they’re dreaming of launching into. Tenstrings is a home of multiple opportunities! We own other business and social enterprises such as the International College of Creative Arts (ICCA), Lagos School of Design, Naijamusic247.com, Tenstrings Music Records and Tours Limited, and many other initiatives that our students benefit from.

Our Approach

Our strength lies in individuality and flexibility in attending to each and every one of our students. People learn music for different reasons, shared success comes only when the learner achieves a sense of fulfillment at the end of their program with us.

Our curriculum and teaching methods are based on the most recent developments and international best practices in music training. We deliver our training services through well-groomed, hands-on, reputable professionals, and using world-class facilities.


Our Motivation

  • We are motivated by the huge amount of talented young people spread across Africa, and we accept the great honour and responsibility to be in a position of service to build these talents and prepare them for a successful future.
  • We are inspired by the enormous power of music – it is strong enough to positively turn our communities around and empower young people for lifelong success.
  • Despite growing economic challenges around the world, the music industry everywhere in the world has continued to thrive, and in some cases, serve as a bailout for many. We at Tenstrings believe that through innovation and hard work, we can leverage this consistent growth in the industry to build a formidable music sector in Africa.
