1st Year (Foundation Year)

Professional Certificate (Foundation Year)

The first year of curriculum is designed as a foundation year. As many young musicians in Uganda have no access to formal music education, the foundation year of the certificate program will change all this and bring you up to speed.

On your main Instrument you will work on all the basic instrumental and vocal techniques and learn to play in a band using charts.

In the music theory courses you will learn harmonic and modal concepts, how to apply them up to 7th chords and you will become musically literate through the intensive rhythmic and melodic reading and writing program. All this with a strong focus on your own music culture.

You will learn basic computer skills from word processing to simple content management.

At the end of the first year you will be well prepared to continue your studies in greater depth in the second year.
