MORE ABOUT THE FOUNDING INSTITUTION:
Tenstrings was founded in 2007 by Nigerian music veteran and educator, Akapo Emmanuel. He decided to establish the institute after several years of experience of music teaching in both public and private institutions in Nigeria. His major motivation for establishing the institute is the need to have a music college that will provide an all-round empowerment for upcoming musicians and talented people at large, who dream of becoming successful music artistes.
Today, Tenstrings is Nigeria’s leading music institute, ranking as the best-spread and most patronised music college. It offers professional and vocational training in music for all categories of learners. We have trained over 4500 persons in about eight years. The institute currently runs in four study centers in Nigeria – Ikeja, Ajah, Surulere and Akure. It also has affiliates in Port Harcourt and Abuja.
