PHILOSOPHY

In a world that is threatened by economic recession and overbearing unemployment trend, one factor seems to be the panacea and that is vocational and service – oriented discipline like music.

Music, apart from being in itself a repository of cultural heritage, traditions, social values, is also a dynamic instrument for galvanizing social transformation, fostering better communication in the global village and a medium for spiritual development and attainment. It is also a scientific and aesthetic phenomenon, having multidisciplinary affiliations, thus making it endearing to all manners of people of world cultures. This program apart from providing recreation for human community will also jolt their inquisitive minds to consciousness of both intrinsic and extrinsic social-religious-moral values. It will provide manpower and expertise needed to operate in various capacities as music producer, artiste manager, record label personnel, concert recitalist/promoter, chamber musician, music teacher, church musician, music merchandise, recording studio engineer, music librarian, music technologist, music broadcaster/publisher and freelance/professional music performer.
