The school provides a unique opportunity for the inhabitants of Zanzibar and the Dhow Regions to study
music both related to their cultural background and more global genres of music. Whilst its main mission
is to provide music for education, employment and enjoyment, special emphasis is placed on broadening the
educational opportunity for young people, children and women. In addition the DCMA is currently seeking
accreditation to become the main teaching centre for teaching music in East and Central Africa.
