Are you in Nakuru and want to take music lessons? This is the place. You will find very nice people with a big heart and great musicians!”​


“Well HIKARI school of Music is arguably the best school of Music online. You will love the mode of study at HIKARI since all lessons are appointment based and not only do you get to be tutored one on one by your teacher, you also get an opportunity to work as part of a group in group lessons in both music and languages. As a student I loved the experience. The teachers are so warm, understanding and considerate. In my first few lessons I had accomplished more than I could have dreamed of. I could read simple scores after my second lesson which to me was such a huge achievement.
This is a go to Music school. If you want to be a serious musician don’t waste time out there join the school ASAP”​
