Music has become one of the popular subjects in school since academic year 2015/2016 as the whole school was introduced to taking music as a subject. It is taught to pupils from early years all the way to year 11 for Cambridge IGCSE syllabus. The subject has seen most students seen in performances through singing, dancing and playing various instruments.
All functions of the school are graced by music performances from talented students. This has given many students opportunity to explore their stronghold hidden talents and expose them to be shared by the world.
In February 2017 the IGCSE music class attended the Sauti Za Busara festival in Zanzibar. They attained lots of knowledge from different artistes and bands. They interacted with most musicians on the island just to get to understand how special it is to perform in such big functions. They were majored to write up the concert portfolio one of the requirements from their syllabus.
As if that is not enough, they still managed to be part of the launch of The Francophone week 2017 organized by the Canadian High Commissioner to Tanzania held at Golden Tulip Hotel in Dar. Here, they met Mighty Popo a Rwandan born in Burundian refugee community. He is now a Canadian with the 2004 Juno Award winning the African Guitar Summit and he was accompanied by 7 musicians. He specializes in rock n roll, blues, jazz, R n B, Reggae and folk traditional music genres.
Music does not end there, it is the backbone of all the musical plays and productions performed every year by our able students. It is through all these activities that unite our school community: teachers, parents and students just as we see the students singing the national and patriotic songs of Tanzania in every assembly.
