Dobsonville Campus Music Studio Launch
The College successfully launched the Music Studio at Dobsonville Campus on the 29th June 2017 to officiate the operation of the Music Recording Studio to fellow colleagues in their various formations, levels and portfolios within the college structure. Also to raise awareness to the targeted clients in the community, awareness of the facilities in place within their vicinity, thus helping in bridging the gap between “KASI BUSINESS” and Businesses in town. The idea was to attract business from Industry Professionals (Musicians, Bands, Producers, Beat Makers in Both Hip-Hop and House alike, Music Programmers, Music Sequencers, Churches, Choirs, Voice over Artists and more).
Two guest speakers shared the stage namely; Mr. Putlane Timothy Trevor LENGOASA* (SATCHMO) – a Trumpeter, Composer and Teacher of the Music genre together with Mr. Mokale Koapeng – a Music Lecturer at University of South Africa (UNISA). The both guest speaker both lamented on the fact that the careers of the musicians are very short. “Throughout the music history, artists have to deal with various pressures; from themselves, fans, the media, record and everyone else in general”, said Mr. Lengoasa. He further said that the college has to ensure that it changes this perception by producing musicians of high standards.
The Music Studio provide the perfect environment in which to learn and bolster skills such as music producing, recording (both in studio and live settings), editing, mixing, mastering, dubbing, synchronization, and more. Students have access to an array of state-of-the-art equipment and is equipped with the same tools used by professionals in the field, from digital audio workstations to analog tape machines.
Therefore, the studio is officially opened to the public at large to record their albums and the rates will beguided by industry studio rates. Our vision is to have friendlier rates and competitive service delivery. We will have three types of booking rates, Hourly Rates, Per Day Lockdown Rates and Project Rates.
Revenue will be used to keep the studio relevant to paying clients, maintenance of both Studio Equipment and Music Department Equipment and Instruments. Stipends of working staff members and or interns will also come from Studio Booking as well.
