The True Definition of Private School Amapiano.

If you have listened to Thebelebe's Jebson and thereafter you switch your playlist to Kelvin Momo's Myekeleni you can immediately hear the difference in the style of music. Unlike Thebelebe's Jebson Private School Amapiano is a style of Amapiano production that does not employ the use of break beat patterns but rather uses soft piano chords and jazz like melodies.

Private School Piano is essentially akin to lounge music because of it's easy listening nature and it's ability to create the feeling of being somewhere else. Private School Amapiano has beautiful crafted instrumentals, with downtempo influences, while remaining thematically focused on the cultural elements of Amapiano.

When Did it Start?

The term Private School Amapiano was birthed shortly after Amapiano began gaining widespread popularity in South Africa in 2018. It was made further popular by some producers who preferred a rather quiet style of production to the break beat style employed by Vigro Deep.
