Music Education

The Gambia’s first specialist school for the integrated study of Traditional Music and Academia.

The Amadu Bansang Jobarteh School of Music was founded by Sona Jobarteh in 2014. It is the first school established in The Gambia to offer the integrated study of music and academic education. Specialising in the area of Manding Music (one of West Africa’s oldest surviving musical traditions) the school not only cultivates knowledge and expertise but also generates pride in the culture and traditions of The Gambia among its students.

Due to your generosity, SBAIC is honored to support guitars lessons for foster kids and the visually challenged.

N4NNotes for Notes® is dedicated to providing youth with completely FREE access to music instruments, instruction and recording studio environments so that music may become a profoundly positive experience in their lives.  Through its Tommy Emmanuel benefit concert, SBAIC is thrilled to be able to supply a new guitar to each of it studios from coast to coast.
