Riara university and MIPA signed a MOU in order to offer a 1-year Certificate/2-year Diploma course in Music and Music Business. The program will be targeting musicians between 18 and 35 who have or would like to pursue a professional career in the music industry. We aim to equip them with professional skills and business knowledge as well as technical skills needed in order to sustain a successful career in the highly competitive music industry.
Together, Riara University and MIPA will provide technical skills and proficiency training, develop instructional materials, conduct training, workshops, performing events, research and consultancy; and generally promote and carry on the work of a Performing Arts Institute.
Individuals who would like to join the program are required to pass a highly competitive round of auditions that are taking place later this year and early 2015.
