For some, it is chicken soup that mends the soul. For others, it is music that makes the world whole again. So much so that they dream of producing their own music and possibly make a living from music.
The good news is that from the beginning of this year, Boston City Campus and Business College has teamed up with Africa’s largest independent dance record label, Soul Candi, to offer courses in digital music composition and production.
Though it is better known for its Bump series – the biggest-selling dance CD series in South African history – Soul Candi has an educational and development division.
Well-known names that have come through Soul Candi training include Cuber, Shimza and DJ Whisky. Ryan Murgatroyd, alias Crazy White Boy, worked for many years as a Soul Candi lecturer and was instrumental in developing course content.
The Boston/Soul Candi courses enjoy industry recognition and encompass the latest music production techniques. Students do both theoretical and practical training and receive a certificate once they pass their theoretical and practical assessments.
Core subjects include music production with Reason software; music theory; Cubase and audio engineering theory; and advanced production and post-production.
The training is specifically focused on digital music, and to embark on the studies you do not need to have previous knowledge of music or experience with musical instruments.
Only a limited number of students can be accommodated.
However, Boston and Soul Candi are offering students the opportunity to study part-time if they missed out on registering for full-time studies in digital music composition and production courses.
