Making Music Education more relevant in order to develop a professional Music Industry

Conference Six

There is no doubt that Music lives, but many times – Music lives when it can be heard and played by anyone anywhere. That is not the case with a lot of Music coming out of East Africa, a lot is heard but cannot be played by anyone. That is one of the issues this session will tackle. How can we teach Music to have a more professional Industry create work that will live forever?
