A Music Feast with the Music Masters!


It is indeed a Music Feast for students of the Diploma in Music and Audio Technology.

This year, DMAT has organized an outstanding event to break the monotonous daily classroom lessons. It is unexpectedly packed into a one-week programme made up of seminars and workshops, all related to music and audio.


The DMAT Masterclass Series lasted through 6 days from 29th June 2010 – 3rd July 2010. The seminars and workshops provided a vast coverage of knowledge that includes music business, asian music, musicianship and performance ethics, musical songwriting, music production, electro-acoustic, music publishing and copyright, and sound design.

 

More than 100 students participated all the workshops. It was a good experience and environment brought into the polytechnic where students felt a sudden uplift in their learning from school.

 

Not forgetting, several DMAT alumni participated in most of the sessions too.

 

As claimed by Andre (DMAT alumni class of ‘08) "I purposely took leave from work to attend these sessions because I know it costs a high price if I were to attend these professional masterclasses out there! It’s amazing how I could attend these for free here in DMAT!"

A great deal of insights was shared by the range of professionals from various Music & Audio Industry. Highlights of the week included famous music producer, Lee Sisong, Marketing director Simon Nasser from Warner, Film Sound Specialist from India, Neelesh Bahatia, Drummer Mohamed Noor, Juwita Suwito and Band from Malaysia and not forgetting, Musical Theatre Limited. Coincidently, almost every speaker stressed to DMAT students the importance of passion and commitment to their craft.

 

Students of the Diploma in Music and Audio Technology had the opportunity to receive answered and sharings directly by these professionals where many questions triggered in depth discussions. On the whole, it was an eye opening experience for the students and many of them felt inspired to pursue their craft!

The masterclasses were very insightful and inspiring. The experiences shared by the guest taught me useful life lessons and career advice. In a way, it is like learning outside the classroom within a classroom. I do hope that there will be more in the future. It's not everyday you get to meet and learn from an industry professionals (besides our lecturers of course). In my opinion I think it's a good way for us to make contacts - networking, if you will. – Chery, DMAT Year 2
