This study investigated the training programmes of 2 private music schools in Nairobi Province of Kenya and also personal information and training of practising musicians. The study sought to find out what training programmes existed in the private music school and also to determine if the training programmes were adequate in catering for the society's demand for highly trained and versatile musicians to cater for the entertainment sector. This study revealed that the two private music schools investigated had no structured programmes and that lessons tended to be idiosyncratic with every teacher designing his or her own programme. It also revealed that most practising musicians were self-taught. Purposive sampling method was used in selecting the respondents from the private music schools and also in selecting the practicing musicians. Data was collected from the respondents using three types of instruments namely; questionnaires, interviews and observation. A descriptive analysis of data was done and written down in essay form. Chapter One of the project gives the background to the study.

Chapter two presents information on training programmes of two private music schools and personal information and training of practicing musicians.
