Unlock Your Inner Musician: Highlighting Cairo’s Top Music Centers

Music speaks to our bodies and souls in its own unique language. When you watch a guitarist nail it, you can see that they are totally immersed in the performance, motivating you to pursue your own artistic endeavor. I remember personally being enthralled by Sherif Hawary’s solo performance of the song “Laken Ehsasy Mesh Kefaya” during the Egyptian band, Cairokee’s concert, making me want to become a guitarist right on the spot.

Moments like these have inspired us to compile a list of the best places in Cairo to learn musical instruments, bringing out your musician.
