How It’s Done
Our flagship music programme involves a multitude of activities over the course of a year, from technique and stylistic lessons, music theory and sight-reading, improvisation and time-feel concepts, sound-engineering workshops, all the way to marketing and production skills required to put on a successful concert. Learners will be going through fundamentals from a musical theory standpoint and understanding how it relates to their instrument, for example understanding how chords are derived from major scales, and applying scalar knowledge in improvisation. They will learn about tones and textures, and the various ways to achieve certain types of sounds that have been made famous through use in popular music.
There will be listening sessions held to introduce learners to music history both on a global and local scale to gain understanding and familiarity with the development and diversity of the music industry. Masterclasses and workshops will be conducted by industry professionals, geared towards arming learners with knowledge around career options as well as to be a source of guidance and inspiration for them as they embark on their own journey.
