Promising Artist Trainings
CAC also provides musical training for local artists in the Arusha area. Structured around one month/two week intensive camps, 30 young people are trained in warming up, basic musical theory and music business, as well as an introduction to traditional Tanzanian music and the opportunity to develop musical skills they already have. This project aims to tackle the mass unemployment of young people in Tanzania, and developing the music and arts industries. Six promising trainees are selected as interns to the professional CAC troupe for further training.
To date the CAC has provided two trainings, working with a total of 60 young people.
Our next training will be in September 2018. More information will be advertised in due course. Please enquire for more specific information.
The upcoming training will be funded by the Carol Stubbs Memorial Fund. To make a contribution and support this work, please find more information here.
Our upcoming training will be from the 17-28th September, aimed at young people aged 16-22 years.
Topics covered will include dancing and drumming Tanzanian ngoma, acting, reading music, basic music theory, music business, and the basics of English. Participants will be encouraged to develop skills that they already possess, and priority will be given to students who are aiming towards a career in music/dance.
If you are interested in participating, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org, or come to visit us at our offices. Registration forms can be collected from the CAC office, and should be returned before the 10th September.
