Music to the ears

2016-02-10 06:00

GREAT news from Boston City Campus & Business College for students with a love for music and the music industry is that Boston’s Soul Candi 2016 registrations are now open.

Currently Soul Candi Institute of Music is the only place that offers a course that focuses on modern music production methods, coupled with cutting edge technology- based training where the focus is on practical music composition.

Through honouring the immense potential in music as an art form, Soul Candi offers a vibrant and energetic learning environment that stands at the forefront of modern approaches to music production.

Soul Candi’s success record in developing young music talents is largely due to the pivotal role played by Ryan Murgatroyd – Soul Candi’s course developer.

Murgatroyd rose to global prominence when his release Funk Country became BBC1 Radio’s “essential new tune” on the legendary Pete Tong show. Besides his involvement with Soul Candi, Murgatroyd’s passion for music, and passing that knowledge on to others, also led him to create inspirational curriculum content.

Inspired by Murgatroyd’s devotion to the evolution of music, and as Soul Candi’s course developer, prospective students can expect a high tech learning environment that offers students the kind of theory and practical based tuition that allows for a hands-on experience.

In this environment creativity is nourished and students are encouraged to find expression for their unique talents.

Currently three Soul Candi course offerings are offered at selected Boston branches:

Digital Music Composition and Production

This course seamlessly integrates modern music composition with all the latest music production techniques being used by the world’s best hit-making producers.

The unique training methodology combined with lecturer support and guidance gives the students greater opportunity for success.

The core subjects include: Music Production with Reason Software, Music Theory, Cubase and Audio Engineering Theory, and Advanced Production and Post-Production.

•The Music Business

For people with a love for music and an entrepreneurial spirit it is essential to have a working knowledge of the contractual landscape and framework in the music industry.

Too many budding artists with loads of talent are taken for a ride because of a lack of knowledge of copyright law, music rights and licensing. It is important to understand the roles of artists, producers, publishing companies, managers, agents, promoters and attorneys.

The Music Business course will prepare musicians, DJs, event managers and the like for the business side of the music industry.

Course duration is ten weeks on a part-time or full-time basis and students can register anytime, space permitting.
