MUSEA (Music School of Eastern Africa) is a music college based in Kisumu, Nyanza, West Kenya. MUSEA was founded by Isaiah Opere, the organist of the Anglican Cathedral in Kisumu and a group of like-minded church musicians from Western Kenya in 2002.

The school focuses primarily on music within the context of Christian worship. Organ, keyboard, guitar and voice and primary areas of study. Students tend not to come from wealthy backgrounds and MUSEA has to operate on the limited resources available in a relatively deprived area of the country where music teaching is scarce.

MUSEA benefits from close links with musicians in and around the town of Faversham in Kent in the UK. Fundraising concerts are held annually in the autumn in Faversham Parish Church.
