Formal music education in Nigeria, which began in the late nineteenth century, is not yet recognized as an important subject to be studied in the public schools of the nation. Music educators throughout the country are working to establish music education in the schools, incorporate indigenous music forms into the study of music, and improve the training of classroom and specialist music teachers. While there is much work to be done, a good deal of progress has been made toward the goal of offering music education to students throughout Nigeria.
