To be the most sought after institution in training and developing musical arts professionals in Africa
The Zimbabwe College of Music (ZCM) was established in 1948 by a dedicated musician and teacher Eileen Reynolds who saw the need for a centre to be established where music could be taught and appreciated. It was then officially constituted in July 1948. The college exists as a Trust and offers music education from the National Certificate in Music to the Bachelor of Music Degree in Jazz and Ethnomusicology. The teaching philosophy is multi-cultural, so the programmes embrace Western classical, Zimbabwean traditional and Jazz curricula. It is dedicated to celebrating the fascinating music of Zimbabwe’s cultural musical heritage that is attracting interest worldwide.
